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
