The Tony Evans Travel Grant

The Tony Evans Travel Grant is being held over until 2009. We wish to advise that it is not now being offered in 2008.

IATUL Travel Grant Programme

IATUL operates an annual Travel Grant Programme to assist first-time attendees at the IATUL Conference who are from outside of the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and EU countries. The purpose of the Travel Grants is to encourage participation by institutions that are currently not members of IATUL. Travel grants will be awarded to library and/or information professionals whose libraries qualify for membership in IATUL.

The IATUL Board has introduced a Travel Grant Programme to support individuals from developing countries in order to increase the number and range of countries that participate in IATUL conferences.

When applying for a Travel Grant, please remember that English is the official language of the organization and its annual conference.

The Travel Grants are not intended to cover the full cost of attending the conference. They can be used for Conference registration costs and other travel expenses. The maximum amount of the grant for one person is 1,000 Euro.

Conference organizers are not able to offer assistance with visa applications.

How to apply for a Travel Grant

Applicants should submit a brief case (not more than 250 words), in English, explaining what benefits they expect to obtain from attending the IATUL conference. Include in the application: name, title, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number (with area and country code), and fax number. Only complete applications will be considered.

Where to send the application?

Please send your application to Gillian Barthorpe, AUT University Library, Private Bag 92006, Auckland, 1142, New Zealand. Applications should be marked IATUL 2008.
