ACRL-Oregon is delighted to announce a unique round of professional development scholarships aimed to support e-learning opportunities. Thanks to a matching-fund grant from the State Library of Oregon, ACRL-Oregon is able to offer multiple awards of up to $175. Applications are open for the E-Learning Professional Development Scholarship and we are currently soliciting applications until November 27. Applications will be reviewed within two weeks of the application deadline.
How can the scholarship be used?
The ACRL-Oregon Professional Development Scholarship may be used toward remote conferences, remote workshops, e-learning courses, e-learning seminars, or other learning opportunities appropriate to the applicant. The funding priority is registration costs incurred by the applicant.
