The ArLA Scholarship Committee is now accepting applications for the 2013
scholarships to be awarded at annual conference in September. There will be two
$1,500 scholarships available to two deserving applicants this year.
The Arkansas Library Association Annual Scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who is pursuing a degree from an American Library Association accredited institution.
The Arkansas Library Association School Library Media Specialist (SLMS) Scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who is pursuing a degree from The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education accredited institution.
Funding for the two scholarships is provided by the generous donations of ArLA members and others who want to support library students and by the fundraising efforts of the scholarship committee. Donations are accepted year round, not just when memberships are renewed! Contributions may be made in memory and/or in honor of someone who has made a difference in your life. Have you acknowledged that person who sparked your interest and encouraged you into the library profession? Honoring them with a donation in their name is a perfect way to say thank you. This is a wonderful opportunity to invest in the future of our beloved profession by supporting those who strive to go after us. A scholarship donation form can be found online at the top of the page or at http://arlib.org/forms/.
