Paul Reynolds Scholarship – The No Numpties Award
LIANZA and the National Library of New Zealand offer the Paul Reynolds scholarship, an award in honour of the inspirational internet pioneer and media commentator.
Paul was Scotsman who wandered, and found a home in New Zealand. He was a renaissance man, dedicated to learning, who challenged the online culture and heritage sector in New Zealand to bring value to the citizens of the internet. In his thick brogue accent, he was fluent in a language of charm, insight, and bluntness.
This scholarship, offered every two years, is worth a minimum of $5000, and enables the successful applicant to research or develop specialist digital knowledge or experience at an overseas institution.
To be eligible, applicants need to be currently working in the digital space, in or for the New Zealand Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAM) sector. Applications for the next award will be called for in February 2013.
This scholarship was established from donations made by the National Library of New Zealand and friends of Paul Reynolds. The donations are held in trust by LIANZA.
