Thanks to the generosity of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the Art Libraries Society of North America offers a program to help fund international travel and promote the exchange of ideas and information among art librarians.

Exceptional art information professionals will receive awards of $1,500 to attend conferences, thereby fostering communication and developing connections with international projects and initiatives.

There are two categories of awards:

  • For European librarians and art information professionals to attend the annual conference of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA).   
  • For ARLIS/NA members to attend the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Art Libraries Satellite Meeting or another European art library conference. 

The generous grant from the Kress Foundation will allow ARLIS/NA to make multiple grants to conference participants with the minimum award at $1,500 (USD). We also congratulate past recipients who have benefitted from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation Award for International Travel and enriched our ARLIS/NA annual conferences since 2013. 

Application information and deadline will be provided later in 2020.
