Cyamus Annual Meeting Attendance Grants

To encourage participation by new library professionals, Cyamus offers financial support to first-time attendees, library school students, or recent graduates to attend the Cyamus Annual Meeting. Finances permitting, Cyamus will provide complimentary registration for the Annual Meeting, which also includes a one-year membership in IAMSLIC and Cyamus. An additional amount of travel expenses may be covered depending on the meeting location and other circumstances.

The call for grant proposals is normally issued in early November of the year prior to the spring Annual Meeting, with applications due in early December. Please see the Cyamus Conference Attendance Grant description for more information, details on eligibility, and how to apply.
