This is open to any student. I’m sorry about the link. Zotero seems to throw my home institution Ezproxy stuff into the URL. I think I’ve solved that problem. Here is the link without the Ezproxy bit.

Hi Chris,


Is this open to all students or only those at your home institution? The link is to a page with the message "This database is accessible remotely only to UMKC students, faculty, and staff"

(Business Reference and Services Section)

This $1,000 monetary prize is given to a student enrolled in an ALA accredited master's degree program to fund travel to and attendance at the ALA Annual Conference and a one-year membership in the Business Reference and Services Section (BRASS) of RUSA. Applicants should have demonstrated interest in a career as a business reference librarian, and a potential to be a leader in the profession as demonstrated by activities that may include (but are not limited to) coursework, internships, jobs, special projects, and publications.

In addition to attending the conference, the winner is required to participate in BRASS activities at ALA conference and to write a brief statement about conference experiences for RUSA Update . The winner may not accept a concurrent ALA-sponsored travel award.
