LIS Student Diversity Scholarship: HASTAC 2015

(1 scholarship of up to $1500 available)

Application opens 4/1/2015
Application closes 4/15/2015
Decisions sent 4/20/2015

According to the 2010 US Census, 36.3 percent of the US population belongs to a racial or ethnic minority group. ‘Diversity Counts’, a comprehensive American Library Association (ALA) study of race, gender, and age in professional librarianship indicated in 2010 that 12 percent of credentialed librarians belong to a racial or ethnic minority group. While this was an improvement over previous years, the ALA President at the time wrote, “Although the findings show some improvement in the diversity of the library workforce, we clearly have a long way to go . . . To continue to serve the nation’s increasingly diverse communities, our libraries and the profession must reflect this diversity.” At the programmatic level ALA supports closing this gap in part through the Spectrum Scholarship Program. The Association of Research Libraries complement this effort with the Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce (IRDW), Career Enhancement Program (CEP), ARL/SAA Mosaic Program, and the Leadership and Career Development Program (LCDP). In combination with these programs a number of other professional organizations, corporate partners, and individual donors have begun to support conference participation by individuals of diverse backgrounds – Code4Lib and the Digital Library Federation offer representative examples.

For HASTAC 2015, EBSCO is generously providing a Library and Information Science (LIS) Student Diversity Scholarship for one library student of diverse background to participate. The scholarship covers travel, accommodation, and conference registration in an amount up to $1500.

Eligibility Requirements:

- identify as a racial/ethnic minority group
- currently enrolled in an ALA accredited graduate program in library and information science
- demonstrate experience and/or interest in digital humanities and libraries

Application Requirements:

- completed scholarship form <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1IhWTRq-fyXR9SFVkREDCIq7PkpMNas9B9rttZcotfZw/viewform>
