Student travel award
Each year, NEASIST holds an essay contest open to student members of ASIS&T in the New England, Upstate New York, and Eastern Canada regions. Winners receive travel reimbursements to attend the ASIS&T Annual meeting, one of the most highly regarded meetings in the information science field.
To be eligible to win an award, students must be enrolled in an information science master’s or doctoral program. Further instructions and requirements are described in the calls for submissions, which are distributed through both the NEASIST-L mailing list and the News blog each spring, generally in April or May.
Chapter member awards
NEASIST also honors members who have made especially significant contributions to the chapter each year at the annual chapter awards dinner in May.
