Apply now for the ACRL-OR Professional Development Scholarship

ACRL-Oregon is delighted to announce a new round of Professional Development Scholarship opportunities. Thanks to a one-time matching-fund grant from the State Library of Oregon, ACRL-Oregon is able to offer up to $500 for each award for the 2017-2018 fiscal year. Applications are accepted at three points throughout the year (see below for specific deadlines); we are currently soliciting applications for the November 30 deadline. Applications will be reviewed within two weeks after the application deadline.

How can the scholarship be used?  
The ACRL-Oregon Professional Development Scholarship may be used toward conferences, workshops, courses, seminars, or other learning opportunities (including e-learning opportunities) appropriate to the applicant. The funding priority is registration and transportation costs incurred by the applicant.

Professional Development Scholarships will not be awarded for ACRL-OR/WA Fall Conference attendance as this annual event has its own scholarships.

Who is eligible?

  • All ACRL-Oregon members in good standing.
  • Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received a Professional Development Scholarship from ACRL-Oregon.

Who is not eligible?
Non ACRL-Oregon members.
