Reforma OR wants you to attend this year's OLA conference in Eugene, OR! The Reforma OR OLA conference award will cover the cost of registration for the full conference (Thursday-Saturday, early bird price $190) and a $260 stipend to cover additional costs. This year, Reforma OR will select two lucky applicants to receive the scholarship.  Good Luck!
