                           STUDENT GRANT AWARDS

The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) is an independent
organization bringing together many segments of the serials information
chain to study and explore common interests, problems, and ideas. NASIG is
currently seeking candidates for grants to attend the Eleventh Annual
Conference to be held at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM,
June 20-23, 1996. Through the granting of these awards, NASIG desires to
encourage participation in this information chain by students who are
interested in some aspect of serials work upon completion of their
professional degree.


SCOPE OF AWARD: Recipients are expected to attend the entire conference
and submit a brief written report to NASIG. Expenses for travel,
registration, meals and lodging will be paid by NASIG. Each recipient will
also receive a year's membership in NASIG.

ELIGIBILITY: Students who are currently enrolled at the graduate level in
any ALA accredited library school, who do not already have an ALA

at the time of application. In order to accept an award, a recipient must
not be employed in a position requiring an ALA accredited degree, nor on
leave from such a position, at the time of acceptance of the grant. Equal
consideration will be given to all qualified applicants, with preference
given to those graduating the year of the conference. Students do not have
to be NASIG members to apply.
