Conference Support Award (formerly called Travel Award)
Every year, NEASIS&T provides conference support awards to support participation in the ASIS&T Annual Meeting. Our goals are to support scholarship and connect research and practice, bringing new voices to the chapter. Each award will support each recipient's year-long membership in ASIS&T as well as their conference registration for the 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.
To be eligible to win an award, applicants must be a current graduate student or practitioner in the field of information science. Further instructions and requirements are described in the calls for submissions, which are distributed through ASIS&T discussion lists, the news section of the NEASIS&T website, twitter, and through information-science-related listservs, generally in April or May. Questions? Feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Chapter Member Awards (no longer awarded)
NEASIST also honors members who have made especially significant contributions to the chapter each year at the annual chapter awards dinner in May.
