Hey SLA! It's time - we're now accepting applications for the 2018 SLA Conference Travel Stipend! If you're interested in going to the 2018 SLA Conference in Baltimore, Maryland (and we hope you are!), you should apply for the $1,000 stipend to help pay for your airfare, hotel, and conference registration.

The contest is open to all St. Kate's students. To apply, send a 3-5 essay covering your involvement with SLA and/or commitment to special librarianship; how attending the conference will further your career or education; and how your attendance benefits St. Kate's to Konhe Yoon (kyoon@stkate.edu) by March 15, 2018. The winner will be announced by early April.
