CILIP and its International Library and Information Group (ILIG) invite applicants from New Professionals working in South-East Asia to apply for a funded study tour to the United Kingdom in July 2013.
Applicants should have a maximum of five years post-qualification experience and not have made a previous professional visit to the UK.
The selection panel encourages applications for the 2013 award from the South-East Asian sub-continent. Given the emergence and importance of new professionals within international librarianship, applications for 2013 will be considered from qualified librarians of any age with up to five years post-qualification experience.
Preference will be given to applicants working in least developed countries in the region, for example Cambodia, East Timor, Laos and Myanmar (Burma), as defined by the United Nations at http://www.unohrlls.org/en/ldc/25/ .
Normally visits last for up to three weeks in June or July and it is hoped that the scholarship visit will be planned to coincide with CILIP's Umbrella Conference to be held in Manchester on 2nd and 3rd July 2013. The scholarship supports airfare to, and from, the UK,
travel within the UK and a small daily maintenance allowance.
