International Fellowships

Applications are no longer being accepted for 2009.
Please consider applying for funding for IASSIST 2011.

The mission of the IASSIST International Outreach Committee is to provide support for data professionals from countries with emerging economies who are developing information infrastructures regarding the use and preservation of public and private data and implementing information policy decisions at their home institutions. IASSIST International Outreach has provided financial assistance to over 50 conference participants from around the world since 1997.

Please be aware that Outreach funding is not intended to cover the entire cost of attending the conference. The applicant's home institution must provide some level of financial support to supplement the IASSIST Outreach award. Strong preference will be given to first time Outreach participants and only fully completed applications will be accepted. Applicants submitting a paper will be given priority consideration for funding.

For more information, to apply for funding or nominate a person for a fellowship, please send an email inquiry to the The International Outreach Committee chair, Paula Lackie (plackie at carleton.edu).
