Hello SLA Military Libraries Division members,
In light of the current fiscal realities, the MLD Board has approved a stipend for attendance at the Military Libraries Workshop (MLW) for this year for current SLA Military Libraries Division members.
The stipend will cover:
1.) travel expenses up to $500,
2.) full waiver of the MLW registration fee, and
3.) up to 3 nights of your hotel room at the conference rate, taxes included (restricted to the conference hotel –
Embassy Suites, 800 Monroe St. SW, Huntsville, AL 35801;
( http://embassysuites3.hilton.com/en/hotels/alabama/embassy-suites-huntsville-hotel-and-spa-HSVESES/index.html ). The stipend will not cover any extras you order in your hotel room (i.e., room service, etc.).
Please check with your supervisor and/or ethics department about the possibility of applying for the stipend. Each branch or organization will have different rules/regulations on the subject.
Applications are due to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 26 November and will be taken in the order they are received. If we receive more than 40 applications the additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list.
Please see attached for the application document ( MLW 2013 – Stipend Application ) . You will need to sign the document in person at MLW, so you may leave that area of the form blank.
