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 2015 LION Summit, Oct. 1-3 in Chicago. Sorry, the application deadline was Monday, Aug. 22.
We'll help defray travel and hotel costs to ensure that even more publishers are able to attend. We'll be granting approximately 5 stipends of $400 each, and 10 of $250 each. 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.
