The IFLA Governing Board and Irish National Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 World Library and Information Congress (WLIC).  

Please see detailed information.

Apply for Grants and Awards

With generous support from various sources, a number of grants and awards are available every year for supporting delegates to attend the IFLA World Library and Information Congress.

Grants and awards provide selected delegates with support to cover their congress registration. They can also sometimes cover other costs (travel, accommodation, daily expenses).

IFLA WLIC grants and awards are launched between November 2019 and April 2020 and are collected on this page as soon as they become available.
