Dear Colleagues, 
The ASIS&T International Information Issues Special Interest Group (SIG-III)
is pleased to announce that for 2011 we will be able to sponsor a group of
deserving information science PhD and Masters students who STUDY and RESIDE
in developing countries for complimentary ASIS&T memberships.
We are soliciting nominations of student candidates for the InfoShare
Student Membership Award.  Please include a Curriculum Vitae (or equivalent)
and a brief description of why this person is deserving of membership,
including their willingness to promote ASIS&T within their networks.
Awardees will be decided by a vote of the SIG-III officers at the end of
2010.  All Curriculum Vitae will be kept private, viewable only by SIG-III
Each membership award will be for one year, with the possibility of renewal
for a second year if the new member proves to be a strong advocate for
ASIS&T in their home country during the course of the year. Awardees will be
asked to submit a report on their activities by next year's Annual Meeting,
which may include, but are not limited to: 
- sharing ASIS&T publications that they receive (the Bulletin of ASIS&T and
JASIS&T) with other colleagues
- promoting the SIG-III paper contest among their colleagues

area who may be able to speak about ASIS&T and information science

with your help.  Please start thinking about student candidates among your
networks and send recommendations of deserving students to Abebe Rorissa
