Booksellers are encouraged to apply for a chance to win a scholarship to the American Booksellers Association’s 2019 Winter Institute by filling out the Wi14 scholarship application form on BookWeb. The deadline to apply is June 30 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
The 14th annual Winter Institute (Wi14) will be held January 22–25 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Scholarships will cover the conference fee; up to four nights plus tax at the host hotel; and transportation costs up to $400.
ABA will announce the scholarship winners in August; registration for the institute opens in September. Booksellers from ABA member stores that did not have a Winter Institute scholarship winner in 2017 or 2018 are eligible to apply.
Booksellers attending the fall regional trade shows will also have a chance to win by dropping off a business card at the ABA booth.
Booksellers with questions about Winter Institute 14 or the scholarship application process should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
