Apply now for travel support for the LION Summit!

Keeping it real: Local news results

By Dylan Smith | Aug. 1, 2017

The Board of Directors of LION Publishers is pleased to offer a limited number of stipends to help fund travel and hotel arrangements for the 2017 LION Summit, Oct. 26-28 in Chicago. Apply now — the deadline is Tuesday, Sept. 5!

We'll help defray travel and hotel costs to ensure that even more publishers are able to attend. We'll be granting travel scholarships at two levels: $500 and $250. Preference will be for those who demonstrate financial need — we can't cover everybody's travel, but want to have as many of our members as possible attend. If receiving a grant would make a difference in your being able to take part, please apply. If a lesser amount would make your travel budget work, please indicate that in the application form. These travel scholarships are made possible by a generous grant from the Ford Foundation and support from the Knight Foundation.
