Scholarship Programme

Open Repositories 2015 Scholarship Programme

The Open Repositories Steering Committee is delighted to announce that for OR2015 we will again be running our Scholarship Programme. This programme will enable us to provide support for a small number of full registered places for the 2015 conference in Indianapolis. The programme is open to librarians, repository managers, developers and researchers in digital libraries and related fields. Applicants submitting a paper for the conference will be given priority consideration for funding (please provide details of your submission in the application form).

Two questions in the application form ask ‘What is it about Open Repositories that interests you’ and ‘What do you expect to gain from attending the conference?’ You may wish to prepare answers to these before completing the form as the responses to these will be critical to the success of your application.

Please note: the Scholarship provides funding only for a full conference registration (including dinner and the poster reception). It does not cover other costs such as accommodation, travel and subsistence. It is anticipated that the applicant’s home institution will provide financial support to supplement the OR Scholarship Award.

Application Form (via GoogleDocs)

The deadline for applications is 30 January 2015 6 February 2015.
