Call for Applicants for the Sewell Stipend to Attend the 2022 APHA Annual Meeting
The Sewell Stipend pays for librarians to participate virtually in the annual meeting of APHA, the American Public Health Association. You can meet researchers and practitioners of public health as well as other librarians working with public health information. Don’t just trust us to tell you that this opportunity is worth taking; hear it straight from the Sewell Stipend recipients themselves at https://sites.google.com/view/sewellstipend/recipients-reports.
The 2021 cohort had a great conference experience, both in-person and virtual, and the librarians who receive Sewell Stipends this year will too. What’s more, the fees for APHA membership and registration will again be paid directly to APHA, so the 2022 Sewell Stipend recipients don’t have to spend any money out of pocket. In addition, recipients receive $300 to help offset the cost associated with travel, meetings with your mentor, child-care, etc. Here’s to a more accessible and equitable approach to professional development! Applications are welcome from all librarians who work with public health practitioners, students, staff, and faculty. Early-career librarians are encouraged to apply. Visit the APHA Annual Meeting Website for more information about the conference (https://www.apha.org/events-and-meetings/annual).
