LISSA Conference Funding is still available, and the big national conferences are upcoming this summer. Attending a LIS conference is a wonderful experience, and this funding is our way to help you have this experience.
Conference funding is available to any current SLIS students with priority given to LISSA members. Funding is available to all students. Everyone, particularly distance education students, are welcome to apply.
For more information about conference funding, please read the LISSA Conference Funding Guidelines
[Please note:Don't worry about deadlines on the above form. We still have funding available so we are extending deadlines, but we do need to know ASAP. Also, we cannot give money if you contact us after you have attended a conference.]
In order to be considered for conference funding, you must submit a Request for Conference Funds to a LISSA officer or to Dr. Tu, the LISSA faculty advisor. You will be notified about your application after it has been processed.
The mailing address is as follows:
Dr. Feili Tu
School of Library and Information Science
1501 Greene Street
University of South Carolina
Columbia, SC 29208
Following the conference, you are required to submit your receipts along with a travel reimbursement voucher to Student Government. A reimbursement check will then be mailed to you.
Students are encouraged to share their conference experiences with others through SLISten UP! articles, presentations, or informal discussions.
