TMLA Travel Grant

The Texas Chapter of the Music Library Association (TMLA) invites you to apply for a travel grant to attend our 2017 annual meeting, which will be a joint meeting with the Southeast Chapter, in New Orleans LA, October 12-14, 2017.

This grant is open to TMLA members and library staff working at a Texas library, or students in a Texas library/information science program. Applications from outside the state of Texas will be considered provided they are accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a TMLA member who resides in that state. Applicants need not be members of TMLA at the time of application but must agree to join the chapter upon receiving the award. This award covers travel funding up to $300.

Application materials should be submitted via email as PDFs to TMLA chapter chair Keith Chapman at kochpman@rice.edu.  To apply, please include the following:

1. A letter of application which includes:
     The reasons for attending the TMLA annual meeting and why you are a good candidate for this grant.
     A justification of financial need.
     A brief budget for travel costs to attend the TMLA annual meeting. Annual meeting registration for travel grant recipients is free and need not be included in your brief budget.
     Information about any other grants, matching funds, or institutional support you may also receive to cover costs to attend the TMLA annual meeting.

2. A current vita or resume.
3. One letter of support directly emailed by the reference via email to Keith Chapman, TMLA Chair, at kochpman@rice.edu.  

Deadline for the receipt of applications is July 15, 2017.

The TMLA Board will notify applicants by August 1, 2017 and announced on TMLA-L immediately thereafter.
