Underrepresented Groups Scholarship

 The LOEX 2024 Committee and the LOEX Director congratulate the recipients of the 2024 scholarships:

 - Paloma Barraza, University of Minnesota

 - Hiva Kadivar, North Carolina State University  

 - Katie Lai, McGill University

 A big thank you to everyone who submitted an application.

The LOEX 2024 Conference Committee, with the support of the LOEX Director, has reserved at least one PAID registration for a librarian or library school student who is a member of an underrepresented group and/or who has done significant work to bring library services or information literacy opportunities to underrepresented groups. Each scholarship recipient will also receive a travel/lodging stipend of $250. Any additional conference-related expenses are the responsibility of the recipient.

Interested librarians and graduate students currently enrolled in ALA-accredited MLIS programs are strongly encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who have been members of the profession for fewer than five years, and whose information literacy & instruction interests include outreach to underrepresented populations.

To apply, please send:

  • A current CV, including number of years in the profession
  • A 500-word essay describing your interest in information literacy services

Submissions will be accepted by email only and should be addressed to:
Michelle Guittar, LOEX 2024 Underrepresented Groups Scholarship Chair, scholarship2024@loexconference.org

Deadline for submission is February 2, 2024. The recipient will be notified by email & announced on the conference website by February 16, 2024.
