Piggy BankSELCO/SELS endorses professional development by supporting individuals wishing to attend continuing education programs offered outside this region.  Individuals employed within the library of a member institution may apply for a scholarship to attend programs such as library seminars and workshops, pre-conference programs, conferences, and other educational programs which will benefit service at the local library as well as regional library service.

Announcements are made in advance when scholarship applications are being accepted for conference events and the amount of support available for each scholarship may depend upon the event for which you have applied. 

All scholarships reimburse expenses related to the conference event.  An eligible expense might include a registration fee, lodging, transportation, etc.  Paid receipts will be required.  Check with SELCO/SELS for expenses that differ from these examples.
