The deadline for applying to the Scholarship Programme has been extended to 8th February.
The Open Repositories Steering Committee is delighted to announce that we are supporting the Open Repositories 2016 Scholarship Programme. This programme will provide support for a small number of full registered places for the 2016 conference in Dublin through a competitive application process. The programme is open to librarians, repository managers, developers, and researchers in digital libraries and related fields. Applicants submitting a paper for the conference will be given priority consideration for funding (please provide details of your submission in the application form).
Two questions in the application form ask ‘What is it about Open Repositories that interests you’ and ‘What do you expect to gain from attending the conference?’ You may wish to prepare answers to these before completing the form as the responses to these will be critical to the success of your application.
Please note: the Scholarship provides funding only for a full conference registration (including the conference banquet and poster reception). It does not cover other costs such as accommodation, travel, and subsistence. It is anticipated that the applicant’s home institution will provide financial support to supplement the OR Scholarship Award.
