President's Conference Scholarship
The President’s Conference Scholarship was established in order to extend conference privileges to practicing librarians who need financial assistance to enable them to attend an annual ACL conference. The Board of Directors intends to cover conference costs for up to three persons per conference. The funds for these scholarships are received from new and renewing ACL members who choose to give above and beyond their membership dues. Individuals must meet the following criteria, to be eligible for participation.
- Be a current member of the Association of Christian Librarians.
- Be a practicing librarian (full-time or part-time) in an academic library (except for full-time studies in graduate schools of library and information science).
- Be a first-time attendee at an annual conference. In the event three first-time attendees do not apply for assistance, consideration will be given to applicants who have not attended a conference within the last five years and who could not attend again without assistance.
Applicants will be notified after the April 15th final deadline for the upcoming June conference. Preference will be given to the following:
The amount of aid given shall not exceed the total conference package cost for attendance from Monday evening through Thursday. It is the scholarship recipient’s responsibility to cover all travel expenses to and from the conference and any additional costs incurred beyond the conference package.
