ABA TECHSHOW Travel Grant Award Applications Due 2/21

The LIT-SIS Grants and Awards Committee is happy to announce that they are reopening and expanding the ABA TECHSHOW grant application window.

One in-person grant for $950 and two virtual grants for $250 will be awarded to attend the 2022 ABA TECHSHOW. The application deadline for this grant is February 21, 2022 at 5:00 pm EST. Grants will be made on the basis of: (a) proven potential ability; and (b) promise of future usefulness and permanence in the legal information profession. The applicant’s financial need will also be considered.

All LIT-SIS members are eligible for this grant. Generally, the awards committee may consider whether the applicant has been the previous recipient of other LIT-SIS grants. Notwithstanding, in the case of limited applications, consideration of previous recipients will not be limited.

All applicants must complete this application and send it with a letter of recommendation to the committee chair, ddell@nova.edu. The letters of recommendation should be from someone at the applicant’s current institution or library. Letters of recommendation should address both your professional reasons for attending this particular meeting and your need for a grant. Incomplete and/or late applications will not be considered.
