Atla will provide one scholarship for $4,000 USD to a student from an underrepresented population enrolled in an ALA-accredited master’s program in library and information science. The scholarship also includes the option of a travel grant to attend and participate in the following Atla Annual. The awardee can choose to participate in the Atla Annual by presenting or creating a poster on a particular topic with the support of the members of the sponsoring Atla Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).
These funds are supplied by generous Atla members who donate to the Scholarships & Grants Annual Fund. For more information and to donate, please visit the Scholarships & Grants Annual Fund.
The application form can be completed and submitted here.
Recipients will be required to submit proof of enrollment in at least six (6) credit hours. Funds will be issued upon receipt of proof of enrollment. Recipients must submit proof of enrollment within one year of award notification. Applications will be reviewed by the Atla Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).
