The Digital Preservation Coalition is pleased to offer two scholarships to its members to enable them to attend the 2018 iPRES Conference in Boston, 24-27 September 2018.

These scholarships are aimed at professionals who have passed beyond the need for introductory training but do not have ready access to further development opportunities and for whom the cost of travel would be a barrier.  The scholarships include conference fees and a contribution towards travel and subsistence.

iPRES conferences embrace a variety of topics in digital preservation - from strategy to implementation, and from international and regional initiatives to small organisations. Within this broad topic area, each conference defines a slightly different focus. Alongside a carefully designed official programme, participants have many opportunities for discussion with international colleagues. The iPRES series aims to foster international interaction and collaboration. Scholarship recipients will be able to attend the full conference as well as accompanying workshops.

The Digital Preservation Coalition is pleased to offer two scholarships which meet the full costs of early bird registration, $500 (c. £425). Applications are welcomed from all DPC members and associates. Successful applicants will also be entitled to a grant to assist with travel and subsistence of a sum up to the following amounts depending on location:

  • Domestic travel - £150
  • Intra-Continental travel - £300
  • Inter-Continental travel - £750

For more information on the application process please read the   full scholarship announcement . All applications should be made using the    DPC Scholarship Application Form. The closing date for all applications is 17:00, Wednesday 13th June 2018.
