Scholarships ensure representation from around the world at MW2005. Volunteers can 'trade' helping out for free registration.

Professional Scholarships

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 MW2005 without some financial assistance. Competitive scholarships covering the full conference registration and a full day of workshops are awarded to a select number of applicants.

Congratulations to the winners of the Professional Scholarships.

Community Contribution Scholarship

Once in a while someone creates a tool that could be quite useful to the community. We want to make sure that Museums and the Web is a venue for sharing resources, so Archives & Museum Informatics created a scholarship this year to recognise a contribution to the museum Web community.

Congratulations to the first winner of a Community Contribution Scholarship.
