The Ysabel Bertolucci MLA Annual Conference Grant recognizes Ysabel Bertolucci’s exemplary career as a member of the Medical Library Association (MLA) and her many contributions to its sections, chapters, and board. Endowed in 2014, the Bertolucci Grant recognizes a health sciences librarian who is involved in nursing, allied health, consumer health, or international librarianship.
The Bertolucci grant provides one award of up to $1,000 toward travel expenses associated with in-person attendance at the annual MLA conference. Applicants must be current members of MLA as well as being currently employed as a health information professional. Preference will be given to applicants with two to five years of professional experience, first-time conference attendees, and/or those who are presenting a paper, poster, or lightning talk at the conference.
The application period opened Wednesday, December 6, 2023. Further information and application guidelines can be found on MLANET. One application serves for both the EBSCO and Bertolucci Annual Conference Travel Grants, so there’s no need to apply twice.
