NEASIS&T Conference Support Award

The Northeast Chapter of ASIS&T is offering three conference support awards to support participation in the ASIS&T 2024 Annual Meeting. The awards will go to practitioners/professionals or graduate students in the field of information science. Our goals are to support scholarship and connect research and practice, bringing new voices to the chapter. 

Each award will support your year-long membership in ASIS&T as well as your conference registration for the 2024 ASIS&T Annual Meeting; enrollment fees for pre/post-meeting workshops and tutorials may also be covered in whole, or in part, up to the award limit. The award will come in the form of a reimbursement with submission of receipts after the conclusion of the ASIS&T Annual Meeting. There is a reimbursement limit of $1000 for each award.  

The Annual Meeting will be focused on the theme of “Putting People First: Responsibility, Reciprocity, and Care in Information Research and Practice.” For more information, you can visit the annual meeting webpage.

Benefits of ASIS&T membership include:

  • Membership in our Northeast regional chapter
    • Mentorship and networking with experienced NEASIS&T members
    • Opportunities to build professional skills (including project management, budgeting, marketing, etc.)
  • Discounted conference registration for ASIS&T and NEASIS&T events
  • Webinars (free to ASIS&T members!) and discounts on other publications
  • A year’s subscription to the Journal of ASIS&T and the Bulletin

Eligibility & Applications

Applicants must be either current graduate students (current students in their last semester of their program are still eligible), practitioners or educators in the field of information science at the time of their application and living and/or working in the Northeast region (ME, NH, NY, NJ, VT, MA, RI, CT, DE, MD, PA, or Washington, DC). We define information science broadly: librarians, archivists, data/knowledge managers, information architects, web developers, etc., are all encouraged to apply.  Previous NEASIS&T Conference Support Award recipients are not eligible. 

Applicants are not required to be current NEASIS&T members. Awardees are also invited to join the NEASIS&T program committee, but there is no obligation to join. Recipients are, however, expected to participate in the following NEASIS&T activities in 2024-2025 as Terms of Award:

  • Share your conference experience with the NEASIS&T chapter via a blog post due December 1, 2024.
  • Share your conference experience at a NEASIS&T Annual Experience Report event (held in November or December, virtually).

Remember, submission of receipts documenting membership and conference registration expenses is required for reimbursement.

*If the winner is unable to meet all of the terms due to a relocation, NEASIS&T should be notified immediately.

**If the winner cannot attend the 2024 ASIS&T Annual Meeting, they will forfeit the entirety of the award.
