  • 1.  Applications Now Open For NISO Plus 2021 Scholarship Program!

    Posted 11-24-2020 22:28

    I'm delighted to announce that, with the generous support of Digital Science, we are now inviting applications for our NISO Plus 2021 scholarship program. Building on the success of our experience with the first cohort of NISO Plus scholarship winners (including @Kelly Denzer @Gabriela Mejias @Melissa Close among others!), this is a great opportunity to get involved with NISO and our community - not just at the NISO Plus conference, but also throughout the year.


    NISO Plus scholarships are intended for anyone who feels that their voice and views are currently under-represented in libraries, vendors, publishers, or other parts of the information ecosystem. This program is part of our ongoing efforts to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in our community.

    Successful applicants will be eligible for:

    • Free registration for NISO Plus 2021 (a virtual conference taking place on February 22-25, 2021) 
    • Networking opportunities with NISO Plus Board members, staff, and other past and present scholarship winners
    • Free registration for all NISO educational webinars in 2021
    • Opportunities to volunteer for NISO committees and groups
    • And more!

    If you're interested in joining our scholarship program in 2021 (or know someone who is), please apply by December 21, 2020, using this form. The NISO Plus Scholarships Committee will be reviewing all eligible applications, and we will get back to everyone who applied by January 22, 2021.

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me either here or by email (ameadows@niso.org).

    Thanks!
