Applications for the ALAO Diversity Scholarship

 

The ALAO Diversity Committee is currently accepting applications for the ALAO Diversity Scholarship, which is awarded annually to a library school student residing in Ohio with a demonstrated commitment to diversity. A qualified candidate will: (1) be a full-time or part-time student enrolled in or recently accepted to an ALA-accredited MLS program, either on campus or via distance education, for the fall term following the call for scholarship applications; (2) currently live in Ohio; and (3) demonstrate the following: (a) potential in the field; (b) leadership ability; and (c) diversity in one or more ways, including, but not limited to: race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, life experience, physical ability, and a sense of commitment to these and other diversity issues.

 

The $1,500.00 scholarship will be applied directly to the recipient’s bursar account for tuition at his or her academic institution. The student also will receive a complimentary registration for ALAO’s Annual Conference and a year of mentoring by a selected ALAO Member.
