Each year, NEASIST holds an essay contest for travel reimbursements to attend the ASIS&T Annual meeting, one of the most highly regarded meetings in the information science field. New for 2015: in addition to our traditional travel award granted to promising graduate students, we are offering a second award this year to working professionals.
To be eligible to win an award, applicants must be a current graduate student or practitioner in the field of information science. 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.
