Applications are open through November 30 for the ACRL-OR School/Academic Librarian Collaboration Scholarship. Up to $1,000 is available per year for this scholarship. Applications will be reviewed at two points during the year (November and April) — or until the money runs out.
How can the scholarship be used?
This funding opportunity covers any collaboration between at least one school librarian and at least one academic librarian that the applicant(s) can make a good case for. This includes, but is not limited to:
*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!

Who is eligible?
All Oregon academic and school librarians.
Preference will be given to teams that include at least one ACRL-Oregon member in good standing. Preference will also be given to applicants who have not previously received a School/Academic Librarian Collaboration Scholarship from ACRL-Oregon.
Who is not eligible?
Academic and school librarians outside of Oregon (unless part of a team of collaborators that includes at least one Oregon librarian).
How will applications be evaluated?
Reviewers will look for applications that:
*Have at least one applicant who is a member of ACRL-Oregon.
*Demonstrate meaningful collaboration between school and academic librarians.
*Have the potential to favorably influence information literacy awareness/education in Oregon.
Deadline: Applications are due by Thursday, November 30, 2017. Apply now!
