MLA is very pleased to report that we received many applications for the 2018 Research Training Institute for Health Sciences Librarians (RTI) and are so happy to see the overwhelming enthusiasm for the new program. The RTI Jury is now evaluating all of them. Applicant selections for the RTI will be made soon, and acceptance letters will be sent in March. Since the response has been strong, the jury will have the difficult task of selecting participants from the many high-caliber applications that were received. Special thanks to all who applied for the RTI program and scholarships!
