Call for CS-SIS Annual Meeting Grant Applications

CS-SIS Members are invited to apply for one of two annual AALL Meeting and Conference grants:

AALL CS-SIS Grant for Students and New Librarians: The purpose of the AALL CS-SIS Grants Program for Students and New Librarians is to provide financial assistance for new librarians or students in library or information school to attend the AALL annual meeting, or a workshop offered at the annual meeting. Among the factors taken into consideration are qualities or activities that indicate the person shows promise of future involvement in the law library profession, especially those who are directly involved in providing technology support of any kind within law libraries.

AALL CS-SIS Grant for Experienced Librarians: The purpose of the AALL CS-SIS Grants Program is to provide financial assistance to librarians who have a demonstrated commitment to the law library profession, especially those who are directly involved in providing technology support of any kind within law libraries.

Grants will cover registration costs to attend the AALL conference, or registration fees for a workshop, held in Chicago. All funds are provided by the AALL CS-SIS.

Successful CS-SIS Grant awardees are expected to write an article about some aspect of attending the AALL Annual Meeting and Conference in Chicago. The article may feature an in-depth review of one program attended or an overview of your whole conference experience, for example.

To apply for a grant, send a letter outlining how you meet the criteria for the applicable grant, listing relevant job duties, other activities and articles written, above to Jean L. Willis, Chair of the CS-SIS Grants and Awards Committee, at jwillis@saclaw.org. Application letters are due by COB on Thursday, March 24, 2016.
