International Delegate Award

The ARLIS/UK & Ireland Annual Conference International Delegate Award has been established in response to the generous hospitality offered to ARLIS/UK & Ireland representatives at overseas conferences.

The International Delegate Award is designed to encourage attendance by overseas professionals at the ARLIS/UK & Ireland Annual Conference, to broaden the field of delegates at the Annual Conference and to support the professional development of art librarians in an international context. Although not exclusively for first-time delegates, priority will be given to applicants who have not attended an ARLIS/UK & Ireland Annual Conference before.

The award will consist of a single fee waived place at the ARLIS/UK & Ireland Annual Conference.
The award does not include travel costs, evening meals or accommodation.

2. Applicants must submit a completed application form and a résumé listing educational background, employment history and professional activities by the specified closing date.

4. The recipient of the award must submit a post-conference report to the Council of ARLIS/UK & Ireland within two months of the end of the Conference.
5. If an application is unsuccessful it may be resubmitted the following year.
6. The decisions of the Council of ARLIS/UK & Ireland and its Grants Panel shall be final, and no correspondence regarding them shall be entered into.
