About the Stipends
Two stipends up to $1,000 each are awarded for each symposium: one to a library worker who works directly with young adults, with one to ten years' experience; the second is to a student enrolled in an ALA-accredited MLS program (you must be a MLS student as of Nov. 5, 2010) with a focus on serving young adults in a library setting.
