UKeiG Student Conference Award

Fri 19th Feb, 2010

UKeiG – the Special Interest Group for eInformation of CILIP: the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals – would like to remind students that it offers awards to UK undergraduate and postgraduate students in UK schools or departments of librarianship, information studies, information science, knowledge management or information management running courses accredited by CILIP.

The Student Conference Award is offered to enable a student to attend a UK-based conference relevant to their professional studies (e.g. LILAC, The CILIP Umbrella Conference, the Online Information Meeting).


Applications are accepted throughout the year. The grant awarded may not cover all costs. UKeiG reserves the right to withhold the award. It is a condition of winning support that a short ‘conference report’ is presented for publication in our journal, eLucidate.


Nominations should take the form of a letter detailing the benefits to be gained from attending the conference, as well as details of the conference, including date and place, and the costs for which support is sought.
