Kentucky Library Association Scholarship for Minority Students
- The Kentucky Library Association Scholarship for Minority Students was created in 2007 for the purpose of increasing the number of minorities pursuing careers in the library profession in Kentucky. The scholarship is for minority candidates who show excellence in scholarship and potential for accomplishment in librarianship.
The scholarship will be granted to a Kentucky student entering or continuing their library education in an American Library Association (ALA) or National Council for Teacher Education (NCATE) accredited library school. The recipient will receive a one-year student membership in KLA and a free student registration at the KLA annual meeting.
KLA encourages minority students to apply for the scholarship which is $1000 per student, paid in two equal installments in August/September and in January. Please see the "Scholarship Application" for details and criteria for applying.
