Dear Friends and Colleagues:
The Foreign, Comparative and International Law Special Interest Section (FCIL-SIS) of the American Association of Law Libraries is now accepting applications for the 2017 FCIL Schaffer Grant for Foreign Law Librarians. The Grant subsidizes a foreign law librarian to attend the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL), the world’s largest law librarian professional organization.
The FCIL Schaffer Grant for the AALL Annual Meeting (http://www.aallnet.org/conference) in Austin, Texas (July 15-18, 2017) provides a waiver of the AALL Annual Meeting full registration fee and a grant of a minimum $2,000 to assist with accommodations and travel costs.
Applicants must be law librarians or other professionals working in the legal information field, currently employed in countries other than the United States, and with significant responsibility for the organization, preservation, or provision of legal information. The application deadline is December 16, 2016. The Grant Committee will not consider late or incomplete applications. Please note: Grant winners must pay all expenses in advance. Grant awards will only be disbursed at the AALL Annual Meeting.

Please feel free to contact me or another committee member if you have any questions about the 2017 FCIL Schaffer Grant for Foreign Law Librarians.
