|PMLG has a number of bursaries to help our members with the financial costs of attending events and working on their Continuous Professional Development. All library and information related events such as study days, workshops and conferences will be considered.
Up to four bursaries, up to a maximum of £250 per applicant, will be awarded in each financial year. Please note: Bursaries depend on the availability of funding, and the Committee reserves the right not to award free places. Normally, only one award will be conferred for any given activity. However, in the event of our receiving more than one high-calibre application for the same event, we will consider offering part-awards to other candidates.
Applicants will be expected to state why they want to attend a particular event and how they plan to use their new knowledge and skills. Successful applicants will be expected to produce a report for the PMLG Journal ‘Access’, within 1 month of attendance.
Please refer to Guidelines for Bursary Applications before applying. Funding can be applied for at any time during the year by submitting the Bursary Application Form. Decisions regarding Bursary Awards are normally taken at PMLG Committee Meetings – please try and ensure your application is received well before the date of the next Meeting prior to your event (see www.cilip.org.uk/public-and-mobile-libraries-group/committee-meetings), to allow time for consideration. Applicants will be notified as soon as possible after the decision is made.
Recipients of all PMLG bursaries will be listed here.
The CILIP Conference is the annual flagship event for the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals and one of the biggest events in the calendar for UK library and information professionals. The conference brings together library, knowledge and information professionals from all sectors of our profession from the UK and overseas, to meet, learn and share knowledge. It’s a great chance to catch up with colleagues and make new connections.
PMLG is pleased to be able to offer a CILIP-sponsored free place to attend the conference as part of our bursary offer for 2018. The bursary place includes access to both days of the conference, lunch, refreshments and all sessions. Accommodation and travel expenses are NOT included and will need to be booked separately. Usual PMLG rules for bursaries apply - please see the links below. Entries must be received at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday 13th April.
