From the GMR: Stipends to attend American Public Health Association annual meeting in DC (Nov 3-7)

Interested in Politics, Policy and Public Health?

They're the theme of the 2007 American Public Health Association annual meeting in Washington, DC November 3-7.

The Grace and Harold Sewell Memorial Fund, Inc. is offering stipends to librarians and other information professionals to help cover the costs of their attending and/or participating in this meeting. Successful
applicants from the greater Washington DC area will receive a stipend of $650. Successful applicants from outside greater Washington will receive $1,000. Though significant, these amounts will NOT cover all costs, so stipend recipients will need to find additional monies to cover remaining costs.

Completed applications are due July 30, 2007--about 3 weeks from today. To apply, read and complete the application form attached or download the Word application form at http://depts.washington.edu/hswork/mla/stipend/mla-crc-call-2007.doc.

Add all required application materials to the completed form and send as a single email attachment to Joey Nicholson jnicholson@nyam.org or Nancy Schaefer NancyS@library.health.ufl.edu .

For more information, contact Joey Nicholson at jnicholson@nyam.org or Nancy Schaefer at NancyS@library.health.ufl.edu .

Please forward this message to others who may be interested.

Hope you'll join us at this colorful and fascinating meeting!
