Apply for a Travel Grant!

To encourage global participation the IATUL Travel Grant programme provides financial assistance to library and/or information professionals from developing countries to attend the Annual IATUL Conference. Five IATUL Travel Grants will be awarded to first-time attendees of this conference. Applications are encouraged from librarians at any institution that is an IATUL member or would qualify for IATUL membership. When applying for a Travel Grant, please remember that English is the official language of the organization and its annual conference.

Travel grants are not intended to cover the full cost of attending the conference. The maximum amount of the grant for one person for this conference is 1.000,- Euros. This must be used to cover conference registration and the remainder for other travel related expenses. Please note that the conference organizer is not able to offer assistance with visa applications. Individuals who have been awarded an IATUL Travel Grant in the past will not be eligible to apply again.

Five awards of € 1,000 each are available. Preference will be given to applicants who fulfill the following conditions:

  • Should be librarians or information professionals working in academic institutions in developing countries attending their first IATUL Conference.
  • Should be from institutions that are eligible for membership to IATUL
  • Must not be previous recipients of travel grants to IATUL conferences.
  • Should have sufficient financial support to cover their expenses at the conference beyond the award € 1,000 provided.
