On behalf of the American Association of Law Libraries and its Scholarships Jury, we would like to inform you of the available scholarships.
AALL offers the Marcia J. Koslov Scholarship, which provides funding for state, court, and county law librarians to attend conferences, seminars, and other live continuing education opportunities, for professional development, networking, and increased leadership roles beyond the usual law library-related conferences.
AALL also offers a Scholarship for Continuing Education Classes, available for all law librarians (not limited to state, court, and county law librarians) who wish to register for continuing education courses related to their fields.
Additionally, the George A. Strait Minority Scholarship is for degree candidates in law school or library school who belong to minority groups and who intend to have a career in law librarianship. If any of you know any students who would qualify for those scholarship opportunities, please feel free to let them know how and where to apply.
In the past, not many librarians have applied for these scholarships. AALL hopes that through publicizing them more, we will encourage more applicants.
As with all AALL scholarships, the Koslov, Strait, and Continuing Education Scholarship applications are due on April 1st. If you know colleagues who should apply, please help us spread the word. Thank you, and good luck!
