ALAO Diversity Scholarship for Library School 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 ALAO’s Annual Conference, and at least one year of
mentorship from a selected ALAO Board Member.

Application: Complete information and the scholarship application are available at:

***Deadline: Friday March 12th, 2010***
