2024 Scholarship Committee Documents

Email to scholarship recipients

Dear scholarship recipients,

We would like to ask each scholarship recipient if s/he needs a conference buddy. Your potential buddy who attended the Code4Lib conference(s) in the past could guide you to your questions about the conference and share their experiences at the conference(s). Especially, this would be a great opportunity for those who are first-time attendees of the conference. If you wish to have a buddy, please reply to this email so that the scholarship committee members connect you with a veteran conference attendee.

Sincerely, 2024 Scholarship Committee

Email to conference attendees

Dear Conference attendees,

The scholarship committee is currently seeking conference buddies for our scholarship recipients. To volunteer, please reply to <SOME EMAIL ADDRESS> with “Conference Buddy 2024” in the subject line.

The goal of the conference buddy is to help the scholarship recipients to get the most experience out of the conference. The following are some suggestions:

  • Contact and introduce yourself to the scholarship recipient before the conference
  • Arrange to meet at the beginning of the conference (e.g. the first day of the conference)
  • Introduce your buddy around at the reception

You don't have to be a multi-year attendee of the conference to become a buddy! Please consider volunteering if you attended the conference once (or know the community) in the past.

Sincerely, 2024 Scholarship Committee
