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 2018 LION Summit, Oct. 11-13 in Chicago. Apply now — the deadline is August 30!
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 Knight Foundation.
