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 Orleans, LA, February 5-9, 2017.
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 Orleans. 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 Karen Stafford (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Amy Trendler (email@example.com).
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 Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 5pm EST. Recipients will be notified by December 23, 2016. 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, the recipient must submit a short report indicating the value of the award to their professional development activities.
