PAM Travel Stipend for attending SLA conference

The SLA-PAM Professional Development Committee is pleased to announce that IOP Publishing is once again sponsoring four conference travel stipends to help new librarians with the expenses of attending the SLA Annual Conference.  The stipends aim to accelerate the advancement of new librarians entering science/technology librarianship by mentoring them to access educational and professional opportunities within the SLA.   This is the third year running that IOP Publishing and the PAM Division have proudly offered these travel stipends.

The selected recipients will each receive a $1,000 stipend to assist in defraying the cost of attending the 2011 SLA conference in Philadelphia, PA in June, 2011. Learn more about the IOP Travel Stipend Award today and nominate yourself, or someone you know.
