Any personal member of OLAC who has never attended an OLAC Conference is
eligible for the OLAC Conference Scholarship.

Award Description:
The award amount will be determined by the OLAC Board and will be
sufficient to cover reasonable estimated costs for registration, lodging,
travel, and meals. Unless special arrangements are made, reimbursement will
be made at the OLAC Conference.

The recipient must confirm in writing that he or she will attend. The
recipient must attend the full conference, including the business meeting
where the award will be announced, and the recipient must write a brief
report for the OLAC Board indicating what he or she gained and found to be
most helpful in his or her work.

Selection Criteria:
The award will be based upon the information provided by the applicant,
which will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee. Following review of
all applications, the Scholarship Committee will submit its recommendation
to the OLAC Board for final approval of the award.

The geographic location of the applicant's home, type of library or
position, age, gender, religion, race, national origin or disability will
not be considered as criteria in the selection of the successful applicant.

its articulation, and cogency. While financial need may be considered, it
is not a requirement for selection.
