Vormelker-Thomas Student Award
Applications are now being accepted for the Special Libraries Association News Division's Vormelker-Thomas Student Award, the stipend given to a graduate student or December 2003 graduate interested in news librarianship to help defray the cost of attending his/her first Special Libraries Association Annual Conference. Details on how to apply for the award are on the SLA News Division Web site.

Applying may sound like a lot of work, but the pool of applicants is usually small, so your chances of winning are much, much, much better than winning the lottery. Besides, it's nothing compared to what you will gain from attending your first professional conference with some financial assistance. Past winners have become important contributors to the field of news librarianship and the News Division.
