Scholarship Application

Applications for Professional Scholarships are due by December 31, 2020

New and innovative accomplishments come from all kinds of organizations throughout the world. MuseWeb recognizes that many individuals who make significant contributions to the community would be unable to attend MuseWeb without some financial assistance. Scholarships are available to help offset the costs of attending the conference. Professionals from the developing world are strongly encouraged to apply.

Scholarships are available for professionals:

  • working in cultural institutions in an under-represented country,
  • working in small institutions throughout the world
  • working in small institutions throughout the world
  • impacted by a natural disaster such as the COVID-19 pandemic,
  • impacted by furloughs, layoffs or labor strikes,
  • who would add to the diversity of the community

Students are not eligible for scholarships, except under one of the categories above, but are encouraged to Volunteer. Please see the Volunteering Page.

If you are a researcher, please use the name of your school in the organization field.

Scholarship Award
A competitive scholarship, covering up to the full conference registration and a full day of workshops, will be awarded to a select number of applicants. In special cases some support may also be offered for travel costs. To be eligible, you must have made a significant contribution to the development of a digital project for cultural heritage, and must demonstrate that you would not be able to attend the meeting without support.

Application Review
The Conference Organizer will review scholarship applications and select recipients. Successful applicants will be those whose involvement in the conference is thought to offer the most value to the applicant and to others in attendance. Applications from the developing world will be given preference.

To highlight new work, scholarship recipients will present a 30-60 minute demonstration during the conference.
