MLA/NLM Spectrum Scholarship
The Medical Library Association (MLA) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM) jointly sponsor two scholarships through the American Library Association (ALA) Spectrum Initiative Scholarship program. This is funded by the National Library of Medicine under NLM Contract NO1-LM-1-3515 with the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library. The two organizations make a total annual donation of $6,500 each year to support minority students in their goals to become health sciences information professionals. African American, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, or Pacific Islander individuals attending ALA-accredited library schools are eligible. Applications are due March 1.
