Underrepresented Groups Scholarship
The LOEX 2021 Conference Committee, with the support of the LOEX Director, has reserved at least one PAID registration for a librarian or library school student who is a member of an underrepresented group and/or who has done significant work to bring library services or information literacy opportunities to underrepresented groups. Each scholarship recipient will also receive a $100 gift certificate for a Black-owned bookstore.
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 & instruction interests include outreach to underrepresented populations.
To apply, please send:
- A current CV, including number of years in the profession
- A 500-word essay describing your interest in Information Literacy services
Submissions will be accepted by email only and should be addressed to:
Shana Higgins, LOEX 2021 Underrepresented Groups Scholarship Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for submission is January 22, 2021. The recipient will be notified by email & announced on the conference website by February 1, 2021.
