Resources and Technical Services Forum (RTSF) Scholarship

The ILA Resources and Technical Services Forum has established a scholarship for technical services staff members who would not otherwise be able to attend the ILA Annual Conference.

We are no longer accepting applications for this scholarship.


Eligibility and Criteria

Scholarships will be awarded based on the following criteria:

Priority in selection will be given to first-time attendees.

The application deadline is May 15 of every year. 

Scholarship Recipient

If awarded, the scholarship covers registration and expenses to the ILA Annual Conference, not to exceed $1000. 

If awarded, the winner will write a brief post-conference essay to include what benefits they received from the conference. The winner agrees that this summary may be published in the ILA Reporter and may be used for future scholarship promotional materials.
