Student Scholarships for METRO's 2015 Annual Conference

by Davis Erin Anderson, Community Engagement Manager, METRO

METRO's Annual Conference brings together more than 250 librarians, archivists, and museum professionals for an all-day discussion around innovative projects underway in NYC and Westchester (check out our line-up here!). Our conference is especially helpful for students; it offers a panorama of topics related to our profession as well as lots of time to interact with the leaders in the field.

With this in mind, we've decided to unroll a scholarship for students in our area* who'd like to attend METRO's 2015 Annual Conference at Baruch College for free on Thursday, January 15, 2015. Please enter to win a scholarship with the form below. Your deadline is 5:00pm Friday, December 19, 2014, and we'll contact the scholarship winners on or by Friday, December 26.

On a related note: we were blown away to see that this year's conference sold out within 48 hours. If you're a student and you'd like to get a jump on registration for our 2016 conference, please consider joining myMETRO, our individual membership program. We'd love to have you.

* this includes library & information science/studies students at Long Island University, Pratt Institute, Queens College, Rutgers University, and St. John's University
