Apply for a Diversity Scholarships by June 1

Are you studying for your MLIS? Are you from an underrepresented population, either religious, racial, ethnic, or gender? Are you an ATLA member? We have two scholarship options for you. 

The Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI Committee) invites applications for the Diversity Scholarship and Scholarship to Promote Diversity in Theological Librarianship.

Completed applications must be submitted no later than June 1, 2016.

The DEI Committee will provide funds to assist a student from an underrepresented population in their enrollment in an ALA-accredited master’s program in library and information studies or to take a course in Theological Librarianship at an ALA-accredited school.

Applications will be reviewed by the DEI Committee.  For more information about the committee’s composition and work, please visit the Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion webpage.

More information, including eligibility and application process, can be found on the scholarship’s webpage.

The funds are supplied by generous ATLA members who donate to the Scholarships and Grants Annual Fund. For more information and to support this fund, please visit the ATLA Scholarships and Grants Annual Fund web page.
