Whether attending online or in-person, we at SIS believe participation in professional conferences is an important part of the student experience. The new SIS Online Conference Registration Award (OCRA) is a new program that provides registration support to MSIS students wishing to attend online professional conferences in the information sciences (IS).
WHEN CAN I APPLY FOR OCRA?
Applications for OCRA are accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year, and must be submitted at least two months prior to the online conference. OCRA is awarded based on availability of funds.
Award recipients may be expected to work with the SIS Communication Specialist to share their experiences at the conference with the SIS community.
