Travelling Librarian Award to the United States  

Apply now for £3,000 travelling award to the United States! See 

http://www.cilip.org.uk/about-us/medalsandawards/travellinglibrarian/pages/travellinglibrarian.aspx

The Travelling Librarian Award is an opportunity to do a study tour in the United States for two weeks.

The English-Speaking Union (ESU) and CILIP invite applications for the Travelling Librarian Award, from UK library and information professionals who are personal members of CILIP. 

The Travelling Librarian Award is intended to encourage US/UK contacts in the library world and the establishment of permanent links through a professional development study tour.

Award details 

The Award will be about £3000 to cover flights and some accommodation in the US. The successful candidate will be free to put together their own programme of visits (although help and advice will be available). Where possible she or he will be encouraged to take up home hospitality with ESU Members. The successful candidate will be expected to cover further incidental costs. 

Normally the visit lasts about 2-3 weeks and takes place during the Autumn.
 
Eligibility
Applicants must be:
a) UK library and information professionals and;
b) in membership of CILIP at time of application.
 
How to apply
Candidates should apply via email with a CV and a supporting letter to:

The deadline for applications is 27 April 2012.

Applications will be considered and a shortlist will be drawn up. All candidates will be contacted shortly after the application deadline. Shortlisted candidates called to interview to discuss their application further in person. 

Interviews will take place in London on Thursday 14 May 2012.
 
Criteria 
A selection panel will judge all applications objectively on how well they further the aims and purposes of the award, and the evidence provided in support of this. Each application will be judged on its individual merits. There is no set application length expected. It is up to each candidate to write as little or as much as they wish. However, what you present in support of your application should be: a) relevant and b) sufficient, to allow the selection panel to make an informed decision. 

Typically, each year there are many excellent applications. However, should there be no suitable application, the panel reserves the right not to make an award for that year. 

A professional development opportunity 
On return, the successful candidate will be expected to give some presentations and produce a short report. Usually a Travelling Librarian reception is held each year when the most recent winner has the opportunity to make a short presentation/talk on their study visit. Past recipients have found the study tour a rewarding personal and professional experience which has often helped advance their career. 

The English-Speaking Union aims to strengthen international understanding through a variety of cultural and educational programmes and scholarships. As part of its international policy, CILIP aims to provide opportunities for members to enrich their professional lives by sharing experience and expertise with overseas colleagues.
