New and innovative accomplishments on the Web come from all kinds of organizations throughout the world. Archives & Museum Informatics recognises that many individuals who make significant contributions to the World Wide Web would be unable to attend MW2010 without some financial assistance. Competitive scholarships covering full conference registration and a full day of workshops were awarded to a select number of applicants.
In special cases, some support were also be offered for travel costs. To be eligible, you must have made a significant contribution to the development of a cultural or heritage Web site, and must have demonstrated that you would not be able to attend the meeting without support.
Congratulations to the winners of the Professional Scholarships.

Museums and the Web offered complementary registration to students and professionals from very small institutions in return for assistance with on-site conference administration.
