Each year, the Bibliographical Society of America (BSA) invites three scholars in the early stages of their careers to present twenty-minute papers on their current, unpublished research in the field of bibliography as members of a panel at BSA's Annual Meeting, which takes place in New York City in late January. The New Scholars Program seeks to promote the work of scholars who are new to the field of bibliography, broadly defined to include any research that deals with the creation, production, publication, distribution, reception, transmission, and subsequent history of texts as material objects (print or manuscript).

Those selected for the panel receive $600 toward the cost of attending the Annual Meeting and a complimentary one-year membership in BSA.

For more about the New Scholars Program and application procedures, see: http://bibsocamer.org/newscholars.htm

The application deadline has been extended to August 31, 2012.
