Museums and the Web 2011 (MW2011): Scholarships and Volunteers
New and innovative accomplishments on the Web come from all kinds of organizations throughout the world. We recognise that many individuals who make significant contributions to the World Wide Web would be unable to attend MW2011 without some financial assistance. Competitive scholarships covering full conference registration and a full day of workshops will be awarded to a select number of applicants. In special cases, some support will 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 demonstrate that you would not be able to attend the meeting without support.
These scholarships are sponsored by companies active in Museums and the Web.
