One of the goals of the Educational Media and Technologies section (EMTS) of MLA for 2008-2009 was to create a sustainable award that would encourage attendance of EMTS members at the annual meetings. While we are not the wealthiest section in MLA, we thought it important to use our money in this way not only to help the members of our section, but also to enhance the experience of MLA at large by our awardees’ attendance.
The section will award up to two individuals $250 each to support attendance at the MLA annual meeting. Applicants must be a current member of EMTS. Priority is given to applicants presenting a paper, poster, presentation or other professional commitment in the area of educational media and technology. Newer members of the EMTS section and/or of MLA are encouraged to apply.
Applications are due to Judy Spak via email by January 2nd and will be reviewed by a jury of EMTS members including both new and long-standing members to the section. Please direct any questions to Judy Spak.
