Texas Library Association Adds to Century Scholarship

In an effort to attract Century Scholarship winners to Texas library schools and libraries, the Texas Library Association (TLA) is offering a $2,000 scholarship to match the ASCLA Century Scholarship.

Who Is Eligible

In order to receive a TLA Century scholarship, candidates must meet the following criteria:
  • Be an ALA Century Scholar
  • Be enrolled in an ALA-recognized master's degree program in library and information studies at a Texas university
  • Agree to work in a Texas library for two years following completion of degree requirements for the master's program
  • Be a member of the Texas Library Association.
The award is payable in two equal installments. Upon receipt of application and verification of enrollment for the fall semester, a check for $1,000 will be forwarded. The second payment of $1,000 will be made after receipt of verification of enrollment for the spring semester.
