VALA proudly announces the successful applicant of the Tech Camp 2019 Diversity Scholarship sponsored by Linux Australia is Corinna Baerhold, Moranbah Library Supervisor at Isaac Regional Libraries.
Corinna has an interest in community engagement possibilities inside as well as outside the library space and was selected largely based on her intention to bring the knowledge she gains at tech camp to her community – via email and the Isaac Library Wiki page in the SLQ wiki, and through blog writing for SLQ.
This scholarship enables individuals facing barriers such as geographical isolation, financial or under-representation, to participate in library and technical events, with the financial support to help them achieve their career goals. Corinna will receive free registration to Tech Camp 2019 in April, as well as flights and accommodation up to the value of $2,000.
Congratulations Corinna. We look forward to welcoming you to Tech Camp 2019!
