Need some help to get to NLS6? There are a number of funding opportunities available for prospective delegates – here’s the low down!

Just for students: wins $200 towards your registration cost

Closing Friday 14 December (midday AEST)

One very generous not-so-new professional has provided funding for three bursaries for students. Each bursary is worth $200AUD, which means the three people who get these bursaries will be able to attend NLS6 for as little as $95!

How do I enter?

Entry is simple. Just finish the statement: “I need to attend NLS6 because …” and send your answers to helpanlsstudent@gmail.com, along with a statement about which course you are enrolled in.

Answers must be submitted by midday (AEST – Brisbane) Friday 14 December 2012. Winners announced Tuesday 18 December 2012.

Am I eligible?

If you’re studying towards an LIS qualification – either part time or full time – we want to hear from you!

Fine print

  • By submitting, you agree that your statement can be published (anonymously) on our website.
  • A panel will decide on the three statements to win. We are looking for people who would have difficulty getting to NLS without some financial assistance.
  • Each winner will receive $200AUD towards their registration costs.
  • If you have already registered for NLS6, we’ll reimburse you $200AUD if you win.

For people who work in AGLIN member libraries: win free registration plus have your travel and accommodation costs covered!

Closing Monday 17 December

AGLIN is offering a bursary that will cover registration, travel and accommodation for a new graduate to attend NLS6. This is an extremely generous offer!

Am I eligible?

Is your organisation a member of the Australian Government Libraries Information Network (AGLIN)? Then you can apply for this funding opportunity.

How do I enter?

Contact Jessica from AGLIN at aglin@alia.org.au

For people who are self-funding: win free registration!

Closing Friday 21 December (midday AEST)

A whole bunch of experienced, senior members of the LIS profession based in Brisbane pitched in to raise funds for new graduates to attend NLS6. This funding opportunity is for people who would have to pay their own way to get to NLS6. Perhaps you missed out on getting funding from your organisation, or perhaps you’re not working right now. This bursary could be your ticket to NLS6! There are three registrations up for grabs.

Am I eligible?

If you can’t get funding from your organisation to attend NLS, or you’re not currently employed in the field, you should apply for this bursary!

How do I enter?

Simply email us at symposiumchairs@newlibrarianssymposium.com and tell us why you need this funding.

Answers must be submitted by midday (AEST – Brisbane) Friday 21 December 2012. Winners announced Monday 24 December 2012.

  • A panel will decide on the three entries to win. We are looking for people who would have difficulty getting to NLS without some financial assistance. This bursary is specifically for people who don’t have financial support from their organisation to attend.
  • Each winner will receive complimentary registration for the Symposium.
  • If you have already registered for NLS6, we’ll reimburse your registration costs if you win.

For people who have to travel to get to NLS6: win up to $1000 towards your travel expenses

Closing Tuesday 15 January

The cost of travel can be a big barrier to attendance at events and conferences. The ALIA New Generation Advisory Committee (NGAC) is running a competition to win a bursary towards your travel and/or accommodation costs.

There are multiple bursaries available and the amount of the bursaries awarded will depend on the needs of the people who get them.

Am I eligible?

The competition is open to presenters and non-presenters, students or anyone just wanting to go for the experience. There are only two requirements – you must be a personal member of ALIA and must not have been involved in organising the Symposium.

How do I enter?

Fill in the application form, write a short statement and then get creative! Use a digital format and tell us how the symposium themes or sub-themes will help you ‘be different’.

  • NGAC will decide on the entries to win. Multiple bursaries are available.
  • Each winner will receive funding towards their travel and accommodation costs.
  • If you have already paid for your travel and accommodation, we will reimburse you the amount you are awarded through the bursary.
  • Any questions contact Danielle or Kate at aliangac@gmail.com
