Applications are now being accepted for the ALAO Diversity Scholarship at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DVDWBKB
The application period runs until Wednesday, February 1, 2017.
The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) values diversity in its membership, in the profession, and in future library professionals. For this reason, we offer a $1,500 scholarship to a promising student enrolled in an ALA-accredited MLIS 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 also will receive a complimentary registration for ALAO’s Annual Conference and a year of mentoring by a selected ALAO Member.
***Deadline: Wednesday, February 1, 2017***
