NOTSL Invites Applications for the Jane Myers Scholarship
Applications for the 2021 Northern Ohio Technical Services Librarians (NOTSL) Jane Myers Scholarship
are now being accepted. Scholarship(s) will be awarded at the discretion of the NOTSL Scholarship Committee, not to exceed $500 dependent upon need and number of applicants.
Applicants must be currently working in an Ohio library in a professional, paraprofessional, or support position in a technical services area, or be students (residing or studying in Ohio) currently taking coursework in librarianship. The content of the proposed educational activity must relate to technical services, cataloging, serials, acquisitions, preservation, processing, or management of technical services. Typically, funded activities can include costs for workshops, conferences, coursework, professional meetings, or research, but not training required by an employer. Applicants must specify the nature and cost of the proposed activity for the Scholarship Board to properly determine eligibility and the allocation of funds.
Scholarships will be applied for the calendar year, from January to December of 2021.
After the educational activity, scholarship winners are required to submit a summary of their activities, which will be posted on the NOTSL web page. The deadline for application is December 31, 2020 and recipients will receive notification no later than January 31, 2021.
