MLA/MALC Academic Libraries Scholarship

When the Michigan Academic Library Council (MALC) ceased operation, their bylaws stipulated that any remaining assests must be transfered to another 501©3 organization. MALC graciously chose MLA to receive the funds because of the success and growth of the Academic Libraries Conference and the revitalization of the ACRL Chapter. Their donation has resulted, in part, in a scholarship fund to provide three (3) librarians and four (4) students with registration and travel expenses to attend the Academic Libraries Conference. To apply, download and complete the appropriate applications (librarian or student) and forward to MLA. The deadline to apply is February 3, 2017.
