2018 William C. Bunce ARLIS/NA-Midstates Travel Award

On behalf of the ARLIS/NA Midstates Chapter, the Travel Awards Committee is pleased to offer the William C. Bunce Travel Award of $600 for travel to the ARLIS/NA Annual Conference in New York City, February 25-March 1, 2018.

This award is given in honor of William C. Bunce, who served as the Director of the Kohler Art Library at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from 1966 to 1999. The William C. Bunce ARLIS/NA-Midstates Travel Award is intended to support a Midstates chapter member's professional development by providing funding to attend the annual ARLIS/NA annual conference. Only ARLIS/NA-Midstates Chapter members are eligible. Information about becoming a member of ARLIS/NA and the regional chapter is available at the ARLIS/NA website (www.arlisna.org/join.taf) and the ARLIS/NA-Midstates website (midstates.arlisna.org/membership.html).

This Travel Award will be granted based on one or more of the following criteria: financial need; level of chapter participation; first-time attendance; and contribution to the conference.

To apply for this award please submit a letter of application, addressing relevant award criteria and explaining how you will benefit from attending the ARLIS/NA Annual Conference in New York. You must also indicate the level of funding you expect to receive from your institution and include a current resume or CV. Please send applications via email to Amy Trendler (aetrendler@bsu.edu).

We hope that these funds will help to offset a Midstates member's expenses to attend the ARLIS/NA annual conference. The application deadline is Friday, January 5, 2018 at 5pm EST. The recipient will be notified by January 12, 2018 and will receive the award by the January 26, 2018 early-rate registration deadline for the conference. The recipient must confirm in writing that they will be able to use the award for conference attendance and will not be eligible to apply again for three years. After receiving the award and attending the conference, the recipient must submit a short report indicating the value of the award to their professional development.

For additional information, please contact a member of the Travel Awards Committee, Amy Trendler (aetrendler@bsu.edu), Marsha Stevenson (msteven1@nd.edu), Andrew Wang (aandrewwangg@gmail.com), or Alexis Burson (aburson1@depaul.edu).
