Deadline: December 31, 2015
This application is specifically for financial assistance to attend the 2016 GCLS Conference in Alexandria, VA (Washington, D.C.) July 6 – 10, 2016.
Your name will only be seen by the Chair of the Scholarship Committee who is a member of the Board of Directors and has signed a Confidentiality and Conflict of Interest Agreement. All personal identification will be removed from your application before it is sent to the members of the scholarship review committee. The Chair cannot divulge any names or personal information about an applicant to the committee. She also does not have a vote.
You are not required to be a member of GCLS to apply for or receive a scholarship, although we hope that you will consider becoming a member at some point! All applicants will be notified by email of their application status on or before January 31st, 2016. In the case of a cancellation after January 31st, a scholarship will be offered to someone whose application was originally declined.
Scholarships are available to cover:
· Shared Hotel Room (50% of a shared room up to 4 nights)
· Partial Hotel Stay (1, 2 or 3 nights)
· Full Hotel Stay (4 nights)
Our scholarship funds are limited, and in the interest of helping as many people as possible, we ask that you only ask for help with what you truly need. Many people are being declined, who would benefit from attending a GCLS Conference.
Please respond thoughtfully and in detail to the following questions.
