CILIP Conference bursaries

The Applications for these bursaries have now CLOSED, but UKeiG are delighted to announce that the winners of the two UKeiG bursary places for CILIP Conference 2019 are Natasha Chowdary and Stephen Furlong.

The CILIP Conference (3-4 July, Manchester) is one of the largest and most eagerly anticipated events in the library and information sector and we can offer two separate full delegate places with one night’s accommodation as a bursary place.

CILIP Conference brings together around 500 professionals from across the sector to share experiences, knowledge and expertise. The keynote speakers include Liz Jolly, Patrick Lambe and Kriti Sharma. The programme is being finalised but you can see an outline of the session content at Keep up to date by following @CILIPConf19

UKeiG will have a stand in the exhibition hall, so remember to come and say hello, find out about our event schedule and see you can get involved with our projects.

UKeiG is pleased to offer two member bursaries for attendance at the 2019 CILIP Conference. The bursary will cover your full conference fee (place includes attendance at both days of the conference, access to all sessions, refreshment breaks and lunches and ticket to drinks reception) plus 1 night’s accommodation and up to £100 towards 2nd class travel.

A member of the UKeiG Committee will be available at the Conference.


•          You must be a current member of CILIP and UKeiG and a Student or Early Career Professional

•          A 300 word statement describing why you should be awarded the bursary and how it will contribute to your professional development. We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have never been to the CILIP Conference before, and who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to go

•          You must be willing to actively tweet from the Conference to support UKeiG members who are unable to attend, especially during sessions relating to digital information.

•          If successful, you will be asked to write up your conference experience for UKeiG’s e-journal eLucidate
