  * Do you work with markup or marked up texts?
  * Do you use XML, XSLT, XQuery, or other markup-related technology?
  * Do you wish you could attend the leading technical conference on
    markup design, standards-based open information management, and
    applications of markup?
  * Do you need financial support to do so?

Then apply for a Balisage 2014 student award!

First-place winner will receive:
