Scholarships for SEI 2016

The Samuel H. Kress Foundation has generously sponsored six scholarships for SEI 2016, which will be held June 7-10, 2016, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The six Kress Scholarship recipients will each receive $833 to cover tuition, accommodations, and minor incidentals. Kress Scholarship applications are due by Friday, February 12, 2016. Recipients will be notified no later than Friday, March 11, 2016. Following the workshop, each Kress Scholarship recipient will be asked to write a report detailing how they benefitted from SEI and the scholarship.

This intensive workshop is designed to serve a wide range of professionals eager to learn about new technologies and update job skills: museum staff, VR curators, librarians, archivists, and all those managing digital image media. SEI provides new professionals, current library school students and more experienced staff the opportunity to stay current in a rapidly changing field, as well as significant networking opportunities.
