[Koha] [Koha-devel] Code4Lib Scholarships available
gmc at esilibrary.com
Fri Dec 2 11:56:30 NZDT 2011
To add one clarification, since Equinox is not holding any registration
slots for the conference, the "free registration to Code4Lib" will be
done by reimbursing the awardees $150 each for the registration fee.
This reimbursement is in _addition_ to the $750 for travel and
accommodations. This does mean that in order to be considered for the
scholarship, one must already be registered or on the waitlist, and the
awards can only be made to individuals who have an active registration
by January 5th.
