The Lexington LOEX Committee and the LOEX Director congratulate the two recipients of the 2017 scholarships:
- Regina Sierra Carter, University of Virginia and Raymond Pun, California State University, Fresno
A big thank you to everyone who submitted an application.
The Lexington LOEX Committee, with the support of the LOEX Conference director, has reserved one PAID registration for a librarian or library school student who is a member of an under-represented minority group and/or who has done significant work to bring library services or information literacy opportunities to minorities. The scholarship will include a travel/lodging stipend of $250. Any additional conference-related expenses are the responsibility of the recipient.
Interested librarians and graduate students currently enrolled in ALA-accredited MLIS programs are strongly encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who have been members of the profession for fewer than five years, and whose information literacy interests include outreach to underserved minority populations.
