The Information Policy & Access Center, in partnership with the American Library Association, received a Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services for 15 Masters of Library Science (MLS) e-government librarian degree scholarships. This unique program is for students interested in careers in librarianship and other information sciences as specialists in digital government information and e-government services. The program will prepare graduates to take advantage of the evolving range of e-government and digital government information services. The program is online, and will begin in Fall 2013. Applications are currently being accepted for up to 25 students. Tuition scholarships (10 at the in-state tuition rate and 5 at the out-of-state tuition rate) are available to 15 highly qualified applicants to the program. Applications are due by February 1, 2013.
