[Please excuse the cross-posting.  Potential applicants should be aware 
of a new piece of information since the initial announcement: as part of 
our overall sponsorship of the conference, Equinox had one attendance 
slot that was reserved for an Equinox employee.  We are now using that 
slot in order to make the scholarship of benefit to somebody who would 
otherwise not be able to attend the conference.  If you meet the 
eligibility criteria and either didn't register for the conference yet 
or are on the waiting list, we encourage you to apply for the scholarship.]

Equinox Software is offering 2 scholarships to the code4lib conference 
in February.

The scholarships will reimburse travel and accommodation expenses up to 
$750.00 USD for a full-time employee from public libraries using either 
Evergreen or Koha to attend the Code4Lib Conference in Seattle, 
Washington, USA, from February 6-9, 2012.  The awardees will also 
receive (depending on their circumstances) free registration to Code4Lib 
or reimbursement of an already-paid registration.

The applicants must be presently working in a public library that is 
currently using or is actively committed to moving to either Evergreen 
or Koha as their ILS.

The applicants must indicate any amount and source of additional funding 
which, combined with the Scholarship, will permit them to cover their 
expenses to attend the Conference.  (This will not reduce the amount of 
the award.)

Preference will be given to underfunded libraries or libraries in budget 


The email application should include a current resume, including all 
contact information, education, and experience, along with an essay as 
described below.

The applicants will write up to 750 words of narrative in English to 
address the following:
•    Description of the library’s mission and commitment to open source 
•    How attendance may benefit the applicant
•    How the applicant intends to share the benefit of the experience 
with colleagues
•    Description of funding constraints, budgetary limitations, or 
travel/hiring freezes pertinent to the applicant’s situation

APPLICATION ADDRESS:     Please send resumes and essays to Grace Dunbar 
before December 31, 2011 by email attachment to c4lgrant at esilibrary.com

NOTIFICATION:   The successful applicants will be notified by January 5,
