Thomson Scientific is seeking applicants from Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Africa for its annual Roger K. Summit International Scholarship.

The company will award a €5,000 scholarship to a student enrolled in an accredited library or information sciences course. The prize will be awarded at the 2007 Online Information Conference and Exhibition, to be held December 4-6, 2007, in London. The deadline for applicants is 31 October 2007.

The scholarship, one of two that Thomson awards annually, is named in honour of Dialog founder Roger K. Summit, a pioneer in developing the technology behind online information retrieval. It is awarded to graduate students enrolled in library or information science programs. A panel of information professionals selects the regional winner after reviewing academic achievement, interest in electronic information services, proficiency using Dialog online services and faculty recommendations.
