Here's an update from our scholarship committee:
This year the Hudson Valley Library Association (HVLA) will award two scholarships of $1000 each for use toward professional development. One scholarship will be awarded to a student currently enrolled in a library school program at an accredited educational institution. The second scholarship will be awarded to a current school librarian. Applicants should be current members of HVLA. See our membership page for more details on how to register.
The scholarship application deadline is Wednesday, February 12, 2014, and recipients will be announced on Wednesday, March 12, 2014. Upon receiving the scholarship award, winners have until December 31, 2014 to use the funds and will be expected to share a response to their award, and their experiences through a post (or posts) on the HVLA blog.
