The Digital Library Federation is proud to announce that the 2019 Forum fellowship application is now open. This year, we are offering a number of fellowship opportunities to enable a diverse group of practitioners to attend the 2019 DLF Forum, to be held in Tampa, Florida, this October.
For a fifth year,we are offering four GLAM Cross-Pollinator Registration Awards, open to membersof our partner organizations: AIC (the American Institute for Conservation), ARLIS/NA (Art Libraries Society of North America), MCN (the Museum Computer Network), and VRA (the Visual Resources Association).
Please note that GLAM Cross-Pollinator Registration Awards provide registration only. Other costs must be covered by the attendee/their employer.
Other Forum Fellowship opportunities include:
- ARL+DLF Fellowships available to anyone who identifies as members of a group (or groups) underrepresented among digital library and cultural heritage practitioners;
- DLF Students & New Professionals Fellowships are available to anyone affiliated with a DLF member institution who is a current student or a new professional;
- DLF Focus Fellowships support established professionals working towards a particular project, subject, or goal; and
- International Fellowships, which encourage attendance from members of the digital library community who are based in countries other than the United States.
We welcome applications from everyone; DLF member affiliation is only required for our DLF Student & New Professional Fellowships.
In return, Fellows will be asked to share a brief reflection on their experiences after the conference.
