Member donations have a direct impact on quality information, which is essential for improved health.  The Medical Library Association (MLA) recognizes and supports its members and their valuable contributions to the profession through a variety of awards, grants and fellowships.  Each year MLA awards over $70,000 to foster excellence in professional practice and leadership in the health sciences library and information field.  Many awards are funded through financial revenues generated from MLA restricted funds (endowments).  Others awards are supported by annual member donations.
