ARLGS sponsored places for CILIPS Autumn Gathering

Category: Branches and Groups

The Academic and Research Libraries Group Scotland (ARLGS) committee are seeking applications from ARLGS members for two sponsored places at the CILIPS Autumn Gathering, taking place at the Perth Theatre on 23rd October 2019. The sponsored place will cover the conference fees, but not travel or accommodation expenses. Further information about the event can be found here.

To apply for this exciting opportunity, all you have to do is submit a short statement of around 200 words outlining why you want to attend the Autumn Gathering. In this statement you should consider how the sessions will benefit your role and professional development.

Applications from those unable to secure work-based funding to attend the Autumn Gathering will be prioritised along with applications from members who have not been funded by ARLGS for attendance at a professional event in the last two years.

In return for the sponsored place, we ask you to write a report about the conference for the ARLGS blog before the end of 2019.

Applications will be reviewed by the ARLGS committee and their decision will be final. The closing date for this opportunity is 5pm on Monday 16th September 2019. Please send your application to the ARLGS committee at: arlgs.events@gmail.com

We will let the successful applicants know week commencing 23rd September 2019 so get your applications in now!
