Hello: on behalf of the Society for Scholarly Publishing, I would like
to forward information on the SSP Travel Grant program, which will be of
interest to SERIALIST members:

Announcing: Travel Grants Sponsored by the Society for Scholarly
Publishing. Application deadline is March 15, 2009.

Students and Early Career Professionals: apply for a travel grant to
attend the Annual Meeting of the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP)
in May, 2009.

Professional and Scholarly Publishers: support the development and
growth of staff and colleagues in your organization by encouraging them
to apply for a Society for Scholarly Publishing travel grant.

This travel grant program is designed to introduce students of
publishing and information science, together with early career
publishing professionals in the first three years of employment, to the
many educational and networking opportunities available at the popular

components that will help grant awardees optimize their experience.
