From an email:

The Association of Jewish Libraries is pleased to announce a scholarship of $1000 to a student enrolled or accepted in a graduate school of library and information science.

Prospective candidates should have knowledge of and interest in Jewish studies, and demonstrate the potential, ability, and intention of pursuing a career in Judaica librarianship.

The Association of Jewish Libraries awards an annual scholarship to a promising student with a history of participating in Judaic studies or libraries, accepted into or attending an accredited graduate school of library and information science. This scholarship is merit-based rather than needs-based. AJL welcomes and highly encourages award recipients’ involvement in the organization through volunteer and mentorship opportunities. Awardees that attend the conference will additionally benefit from special programming geared toward first-time attendees and networking with librarians at all career stages and specializations.

Free full conference registration is included and encouraged. AJL membership is not required for eligibility.

STUDENTS WHO WISH TO APPLY FOR THIS SCHOLARSHIP SHOULD SUBMIT COMPLETE APPLICATIONS BY APRIL 15, 2016
