💡Are you an emerging leader? Apply today!

Each year, IFLA offers grants to allow newer professionals the possibility to expand their horizons and experience the world of international librarianship.

In 2024, IFLA is offering attendance grants to emerging leaders for the IFLA Information Futures Summit. This is made possible through the generosity of Stichting IFLA Global Libraries.

The grants specifically target emerging leaders in the library field aged 25 – 35 who are personal affiliate members of IFLA, staff of an IFLA institutional member or a member of an IFLA Association member.

Purpose of the grant and coverage

The purpose of the grant is to provide newer professionals with the opportunity to attend and play a contributory role at an international IFLA event, build their profile within the profession, engage with other professionals across the world and facilitate networking for the advancement of librarianship in the recipients’ institutions, communities, and countries.

The grant covers the full registration fee for the Summit and an amount to partially support attendance. The attendance component can be used to support travel, accommodation or other expenses and is between Euro 500 and Euro 2000 depending on the country of origin.

Applications must be received by 12 July 2024. Deadline extended to 15 July 2024
