Travel grants available for librarians working in public health

The Sewell Travel Award for Public Health (STAPH) Committee invites applications for 2019 Sewell Stipends to attend the APHA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA, November 2-6, 2019. The theme this year is “Creating the Healthiest Nation: For science. For equity. For action. For health.” Visit the APHA Annual Meeting Website for more information about the conference.

We anticipate funding approximately 8 non-local librarians (at least $1,235) and 2 local librarians (at least $730). The award will reimburse you for the cost of APHA membership and early-bird conference registration. Non-local librarians receive additional funds to help offset the cost associated with travel. 

For information about this award and full application details, please see: https://sites.google.com/view/sewellstipend/home.

Applications are welcome from all librarians who work with public health practitioners, students, staff, and faculty. Early-career librarians and librarians who are not members of the MLA Public Health/Health Administration section are welcome to apply.

The application deadline is Tuesday, July 16, at 11:00 PM CST.

If you have any questions, please contact Kate Nyhan (kate.nyhan@yale.edu).
