American Library Association Century Scholarship
The Century Scholarship will enable ALA to fulfill one of its most important missions: to bring diversity into the library profession so that the library profession reflects the diversity of the communities library professionals serve.
The annual $2,500 scholarship will fund services or accommodation for a library school student or students with disabilities admitted to an ALA-accredited library school. The scholarship will fund services or accommodations that are either not provided by law or otherwise by the university that will enable the student or students to successfully complete the course of study for a master's or doctorate in library science and become a library or information studies professional.Century Scholarship applicants must provide medical documentation of their disability or disabilities, services, or accommodations and/or services the applicant would need for their studies, demonstrate the need for financial assistance and be citizens of the United States or Canada. Documentation should identify the applicant's disability and how it affects his or her ability to complete a course of study.For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
