This came across the Koha mailing list this week and I thought that some of you might be interested.
Equinox Software is offering 2 scholarships to the code4lib conference in February.
The scholarships will reimburse travel and accommodation expenses up to $750.00 USD for a full-time employee from public libraries using either Evergreen or Koha to attend the Code4Lib Conference in Seattle, Washington, USA, from February 6-9, 2012. The awardees will also receive free registration to Code4Lib.
The applicants must be presently working in a public library that is currently using or is actively committed to moving to either Evergreen or Koha as their ILS.
The applicants must indicate any amount and source of additional funding which, combined with the Scholarship, will permit them to cover their expenses to attend the Conference. (This will not reduce the amount of the award.)
Preference will be given to underfunded libraries or libraries in budget crisis.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION December 31, 2011
The email application should include a current resume, including all contact information, education, and experience, along with an essay as described below.
