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?

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.
