Friday, October 28, at 5:00 p.m. EDT is the deadline for booksellers at ABA member stores that did not have a Winter Institute scholarship winner in 2015 or 2016 to apply for a publisher-sponsored scholarship to the 2017 Winter Institute in Minneapolis.
Booksellers can apply for a scholarship even if they are not registered for the Winter Institute. Scholarships will cover the conference fee, up to four nights’ accommodations at the host hotel, and transportation expenses up to $400. Booksellers who dropped off a business card at the ABA booth at one of the fall regional trade shows have an extra chance at winning a scholarship; winners will be announced in November.
Winter Institute 12 will be held from Friday, January 27, through Monday, January 30, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis in Minnesota. The event is made possible by the support of lead sponsor Ingram Content Group and by publishers large and small.
