Conference Stipend

The District 4 TLA stipend is designed to assist currently enrolled library/information science school students to attend the Texas Library Association Conference that is held in Texas every year by covering the cost of the registration fee and one-night hotel stay. The number of award recipients and whether the award will include both regional and state conferences will be determined by the amount raised through district-wide fundraisers annually.

The award will cover the rate of the conference student registration fee and one-night conference approved hotel accommodation, but will not exceed it. Learn more
