After looking over our budget for the past few years, the board has decided to give back to its members by offering an annual scholarship to be used towards professional development. HVLA is all about creating opportunities for our members to grow as librarians, be it through our meetings, listservs, or events and this will be yet another way for us to not only gain new experiences, but to share those with our colleagues.
There will be two awards given, each for $1000. One will be awarded
to a student enrolled in an accredited library school graduate program
and one will be awarded to a school librarian, both of which will be used
towards professional development. The deadline for submission is Friday,
January 11 and the recipients will be announced on Monday, February 4.
Once awarded, you will have until December 31, 2013 to spend it and you
will report back on your experiences through a post on the HVLA blog. If
you are interested or know anyone who might be interested, please fill
out one of the forms below.
