Are you currently enrolled in an MLIS program?  Thinking of enrolling soon? Now is a great time to seek out scholarship opportunities for next fall.  This week’s American Libraries Direct provided links to two helpful resources:

  • Financial Assistance for Library and Information Studies (PDF) – “The Financial Assistance for Library and Information Studies directory (PDF file) is an annual directory of awards from state library agencies, national and state library associations, local libraries, academic institutions, and foundations that give some form of financial assistance for undergraduate and/or graduate education programs in library and information studies.”
  • ALA-sponsored scholarships: “ALA has more than $300,000 for students who are studying library science or school librarianship at the master’s degree level. Scholarships typically range from $1,500 to $7,000 per student per year.” ALA’s single online application covers all available opportunities. Applications are now being accepted and the deadline is March 8, 2011.
