Every two years VALA offers up to two Travel Scholarships to enable suitable persons to travel overseas to examine aspects of library automation. Candidates proposing to study newer technologies of potential application in Australia but not yet seen here are most likely to be successful. No formal qualifications are required.

The successful candidates will receive up to AUD $13,000 towards travel, accommodation and living expenses and will be offered the opportunity of presenting a paper at the VALA Biennial National Conference in February 2016.
Nominations are now be invited for the 2014 Travel Scholarships - go to Travel Scholarship Nominations and find out more - it's worth up to $13,000!
