OR 2014

Open Repositories 2014 Scholarship Programme

The Open Repositories Steering Committee is delighted to announce that for OR2014 we will be running a pilot Scholarship Programme. This programme will enable us to provide support for a small number of full registered places for this year’s conference in Helsinki. The programme is open to librarians, repository managers, developers and researchers in digital libraries and related fields. Applicants submitting a paper for the conference will be given priority consideration for funding (please provide details of your submission in the application form).

Please note: the Scholarship provides funding only for a full conference registration (including dinner). It does not cover other costs such as accommodation, travel and subsistence. It is anticipated that the applicant’s home institution will provide financial support to supplement the OR Scholarship Award.

The deadline for applications was March 14, 2014.

Selection decisions made

Selection decisions have now been made for the Scholarships and successful candidates have been contacted. Many thanks to all those who applied for this year’s Scholarships. We hope that you will be able to attend OR2014 or future Open Repositories conferences!
