The ALAO Board believes that investing in our members’ professional development will only strengthen our organization. Sponsoring scholarships intended to help our membership attend ACRL 2019 will provide Ohio’s academic librarians an opportunity to share ideas, learn from colleagues, make connections, and better prepare our membership in addressing future challenges in librarianship.
ALAO will be offering a total of 10 scholarships: 5 for ALAO members, and 5 for library students (NOTE: ALAO memberships are free to students). We understand that some institutions may only pay partial costs of attending this conference, and we want to help bridge the gap. These scholarships will be awarded via check so that awardees may use the funds in any way they see fit in helping them attend ACRL 2019. The only requirement to apply for these scholarships is to be a current member of ALAO. Simple!
The amount of these scholarships are as follows:
The application forms will be made available on the ALAO website on December 1, 2018. We will accept applications until 11:59pm on December 31, 2018. Notifications will be sent out on or before January 15, 2019. This allows plenty of time for participants to register for the early-bird rate.
