ALIA and ALIA NGAC are proud to announce the NLS8 Bursary Competition! This is an excellent opportunity for the next generation of Students, Library and Information professionals to win a bursary to attend NLS8 in Canberra in June 2017.

This year we’re inviting the next generation of students and information professionals to create a record of your thoughts – in any format that you like – about where the Library and Information world will be in 2037. The winning entry will be included in a time capsule, to be opened on ALIA’s 100th birthday.
Entries can be either physical or digital and in creative format, such as text, drawing,
music, video, games or crafts. The more creative the better, no holes barred!

Entrants must have ALIA membership and studying or recently graduated from a Library and Information accredited course.

Be quick and submit your entries to Submissions close on the 31st March 2017 at 10 pm.

Bursaries are also available through the NLS8 committee until March 13th. Do you work with any students or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander colleagues? Tell them to apply! Fewer people apply for bursaries than you think. Applicants can apply using a written or video application. For more details head to
