ANZAB

These scholarships have been made possible by a generous anonymous gift  to encourage participation in CABS by Australian and New Zealand booksellers and librarians.

The scholarships

The scholarships consist of full tuition fees (to the value of US$1,500) plus US$2000 for expenses, which should cover the cost of the return flight from AU/NZ. The tuition fees include all instructional material, an evening reception, a picnic, farewell dinner, transport to off-site sessions and lunches. The winners of the scholarship will need to pay for their accommodation. Inexpensive student dorm accommodation is available nearby.

How to apply

ANZAAB is the administering body for these scholarships. Candidates are asked to submit an essay of no more than two pages detailing your experience in the world of antiquarian and rare books, your goals for the future, and what you hope to gain from the scholarship. Preference will be given to those who demonstrate need. A letter of support from a current ANZAAB member would be welcome, but is not essential. Applications should be received no later than 15 January 2015. Email your application to admin@anzaab.com or post it to PO Box 1610, Carindale QLD 4152. The winners of the scholarships will be announced in early February 2015.
