ALA may be in full swing, but so is the application period for the ACRL-Oregon School/Academic Librarian Collaboration Scholarship. Don’t delay! The extended application deadline is just around the corner this coming Tuesday, June 28.
The work of K-12 school librarians is invaluable and interconnected with the work of librarians in higher education. This scholarship 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.
Up to $1,000 may be awarded per year, and all academic and school librarians are eligible to apply. So find a partner (or partners), identify a project or professional development opportunity, and apply! Follow the scholarship application link to access the application and a longer explanation of the scholarship.
Applications will be accepted through June 28, 2016.
