On behalf of the ASIST History Fund Board of Advisors I am pleased to offer up to 20 scholarships of $200 each to attend the ASIST Pre-Conference on the History of ASIST and Information Science Worldwide to be held on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 in Baltimore, MD. This offer is only for student members of ASIST and will be limited to no more than 5 student members from any one institution. The student registration fee for the History Pre-Conference is $200 for early bird registration (deadline is Sept 7).
If you are interested in applying for one of the scholarships write a brief explanation of your reasons for wanting to attend this Pre-Conference event and send it to the e-mail address below no later than Sept. 1. Also include a note that you currently (or plan to join this year) are a student member of ASIST, the name of your institution, e-mail address, and your student status. All levels of student graduate status are acceptable but a slight preference will be given to doctoral students when making the awards.
An e-mail notification will be sent to those who win the scholarships by Sept. 5. If you do apply for the scholarship hold off registering for the History Pre-Conference until a notice is sent about your application. Full details about the History Pre-Conference may be found at: http://www.asis.org/asist2012/historyofASIST.html
