Dodging the Memory Hole 2016: Saving Online News forum organizers initiated a travel scholarship program for select graduate students to attend the forum at the UCLA Library on October 13–14, 2016. The travel scholarship committee was especially interested in working with students from underrepresented and underserved communities.

A Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services supported these DTMH-IMLS scholarships, which were offered to students enrolled in graduate programs (e.g., library/information science, journalism, computer science or related fields) in the U.S. A total of 16 students were selected for the awards. As part of their participation, recipients completed short-term projects supporting the goals of the conference.
