International Member Scholarship

The International Member Scholarship was established by the Commission for International Library Advancement (CILA) so that membership dues would not be a hindrance to international librarians joining ACL. The scholarship covers membership dues for the current, enrolling membership year. Scholarships are awarded on a "first come, first serve" basis, with up to 25 scholarships awarded per year. Individuals must meet the following criteria, to be eligible for participation:

  1. The applicant must be a practicing librarian (full-time or part-time) in academia outside of the United States and Canada, making the equivalent of under $10,000 USD annually.
  2. The applicant must affirm our mission and agree to our statement of faith to be eligible for membership, regardless of job title or educational background.

To Apply: Complete the ACL membership application and check the box "Would you like to apply for the International Membership Scholarship?" Then complete the additional required questions. When finishing the remainder of the application please choose "Pay by Mail" in the Payment Selection area and submit application.

Applicants can expect to receive notification within 14 days of submitting their application. ACL reserves the right to cancel a scholarship or change the criteria for awarding scholarships at any time.
