Apply now for School/Academic Librarian Collaboration Scholarships

As we head back to school, consider applying for this scholarship, which funds partnerships between academic and K-12 librarians. The work of K-12 school librarians is invaluable and interconnected with the work of librarians in higher education. ACRL-Oregon seeks to recognize meaningful collaboration between school and academic librarians to enhance information literacy of students.

What does award-winning collaboration look like?

  • Sponsorship to attend, exhibit, or present at a relevant conference (OASL, regional conferences, or others).
  • Creation of programming, such as a conference, workshop, unconference, or pre-conference.
  • Work on a collaborative research project.
  • Something else we haven’t thought of!

To read about one such project, see this post on the ACRL-OR blog.

How to apply

No one applied for our first deadline in June, so that means that we still have $1,000 to award this year! All Oregon academic and school librarians are eligible to apply. So find a partner (or partners), identify a project or professional development opportunity, and apply — the deadline is October 1!  

Follow the scholarship application link to access the application.
