Applications for LILAC 2023 conference bursaries are now open. To have a truly engaging conference, we believe we need delegates who bring a variety of perspectives and backgrounds. The LILAC conference is therefore offering 5 free places for people from/ working in the following under-represented communities and sectors in the UK:
- Ethnic minority backgrounds
- Further Education
- Health (e.g., NHS – please note; librarians working in Higher Education who support health subjects are not eligible to apply)
The conference place includes 3 days attendance of all LILAC sessions and social events. Travel and accommodation expenses up to the value of £225 are also available if required.
To be eligible for a place you must be a librarian, volunteer, or information professional working in or from the above-mentioned sectors/communities in the UK. You will have to show your commitment to information literacy by writing a short personal statement explaining how attending the conference will be of benefit to you, demonstrating your commitment to information literacy and detailing how you will disseminate knowledge gained from the conference.
To apply for a bursary you will need to register for an account, if you already have an account then you just need to login and go to ‘my account’ where you’ll see details of how to apply.
The closing date for applications is Wednesday 30th November 17:00 (GMT)
