IPSWICH, Mass. — September 20, 2016 — The American Library Association (ALA) and EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) are partnering to offer five scholarships for librarians to attend the 2017 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta. The scholarship allows more librarians to take advantage of the opportunities for continuing education, meetings and interactions with colleagues at the meeting, which will take place from Jan. 20 – 24, 2017.

Each scholarship will provide up to $1,500 to defray the cost of conference registration, travel and expenses. One of the five scholarships will be awarded to a first-time conference attendee. The scholarship recipients will be honored by EBSCO and ALA representatives during the conference at a breakfast on Sunday, Jan. 22.

The application deadline is Nov. 2, 2016, and entries will be judged by a jury designated by ALA. Candidates must submit an essay that answers the questions: What will be the next game changer(s) for your library?
