Check out the MLA Grants and Scholarships

The Grants and Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce three new professional development grants and one new scholarship. Over the last several months, the committee met and reviewed various information to create these opportunities. One element included using the recommendations from the in-depth MLA Finance Committee’s fund analysis as part of the Communities Transition in 2019.

The committee has revised the criteria and terms, application questions, and reference requirements for MLA Scholarships, with the goal of removing barriers to the application and review process. In addition to the two scholarships currently offered by MLA to students enrolled in an ALA-accredited library school, there is now a new, third scholarship offered for $1,000.

 There are now three additional professional development opportunities available: 

The Grants & Scholarship Committee would like to thank the Dental, Collection Development, and Consumer and Patient Health Information Services Caucuses as well as chairs and other stakeholders from past and present MLA Scholarship Juries for their guidance and input during this process.

Submissions for the new MLA Scholarships and grants will be due January 6, 2022. Notification of grants and scholarship recipients will be made in March 2022.
