- For ARLIS/NA members to attend the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Art Libraries Satellite Meeting or another European art library conference. IFLA will hold their World Library and Information Congress August 21-25, 2023 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
*The Samuel H. Kress International Travel Awards Committee may take into consideration levels of need, participation, and travel costs before determining the final amount, but each award will begin with the $1,500 USD amount.
