The Delaware Valley Chapter of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL/DVC) annual scholarship essay is designed to foster and support future academic librarians. A $1000 scholarship award is offered this spring to cover expenses towards attending the ACRL 2017 Baltimore Conference, At the Helm: Leading Transformation. The conference is held once every two years and offers librarians the opportunity to discover new ideas and stay at the forefront of the profession.
Library school students living or working in the chapter’s service area (eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware) and who are currently enrolled in an ALA-accredited program, including distance education programs, are invited to apply.
Each applicant will need to answer the following question in 500 words or less. The student who receives the award will be asked to write an entry for the ACRL/DVC blog about their ACRL Conference experience. The deadline to apply is March 3, 2017. Submit your entry to Martha Stevenson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicant Question: Identify 2-3 programs in the Conference Schedule of interest to you. Why might they benefit your studies?
