ALAO Diversity Scholarship for MLS Students
The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) values diversity in its membership, in the profession, and in future library professionals. For that reason, we offer a $1,500 scholarship to a promising student enrolled in an ALA-accredited MLS program who exemplifies the qualities needed to ensure a diverse library workforce.
The scholarship will be applied directly to the recipient’s bursar account for tuition at his or her academic institution. As the scholarship recipient, the student will receive a complimentary registration for ALAOs Annual Conference, and at least one year of mentorship from a selected ALAO Board Member.
Application: The scholarship application is available at: http://www.alaoweb.org/comsigs/diversity/scholarship-guidelines.html.
Completed applications should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: Friday March 16th, 2007.
