Samuel H. Kress Foundation Award for International Exchange
Thanks to the generosity of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the Art Libraries Society of North America offers a program to help fund international travel and promote the exchange of ideas and information among art librarians. Because most conferences including ARLIS/NA will be virtual this year, we are repurposing the funds for conference scholarships.
Exceptional art information professionals will receive awards of $150-$500 (USD) to underwrite conference registration and attend conferences virtually, thereby fostering communication and developing connections with international projects and initiatives.
There are two categories of awards:
- For European librarians and art information professionals to attend the annual conference of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA).
- 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.
The generous grant from the Kress Foundation will allow ARLIS/NA to make multiple grants to conference participants
The application submission deadline is April 16, 2021.
