We want to help a new book collector to more confidently curate their collection. We want to boost the abilities of a bookseller who craves more knowledge about rare books. We want to see the rare book trade continue to grow in its diversity and strength.
To that end, Biblio is pleased to continue a decade-long tradition of offering a scholarship for the 2019 Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar (CABS). The organizers and faculty of CABS do an excellent job of educating bookish folks on the finer points of rare book identification, valuation, and conservation while also providing courses on the book trade itself.
What we are offering:
The scholarship recipient will have the full cost of tuition, room, and board paid ($1,750), as well as a $250 donation made in their name to the literacy or education-based non-profit of their choice.
How to enter:
1. We want to hear about your book collection or your favorite niche subject to study. Send us a unique essay introducing a lay collector to your chosen field of expertise (around 500 words is ideal). Biblio may choose to publish your article on our website and if so, we will provide you with full credit and links to your business, where applicable.
2. Let us know about the literary or education-based charity that you would pick to receive a $250 donation by giving us a brief description of their work and why you chose them (no more than one single-spaced page).
The deadline for the articles is May 1, 2019. Please send all applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. The scholarship winner will be notified within 7 days of the application deadline.
