The American Library Association is accepting applications for the ALA Scholarship Program, which includes over 12 different scholarship opportunities, many of which make multiple annual awards.

The American Library Association (ALA) has committed itself to making a Master’s degree in library and information science more accessible and affordable for talented women and men who have made the library profession a career choice. Libraries serve as the foundation of life-long learning in our society – they change lives, build communities and connect individuals at the local level with global resources of information and knowledge.
