Sewell Stipend to Attend APHA Annual Meeting
Do you work with public health professionals? Are you interested in public health? Are you interested in attending the American Public Health Association Annual Meeting?
This year’s APHA meeting will take place in San Diego, CA from October 25 – 29, 2008. Its theme is Public Health Without Borders.
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 San Diego area will receive a stipend of at least $650. Successful applicants from outside greater San Diego will receive at least $1,000. This amount covers most of the APHA Membership at $195 and Early Bird (pre-August 15, 2008) Member Registration at $380. 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 25, 2008–just over 3 weeks from today. To apply, read and complete the application form attached or download the Word application form at http://phha.mlanet.org/activities.html. Add all required application materials to the completed form and send as a SINGLE email attachment to Joey Nicholson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
