The Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC) announces new Equity Fellowship! Through the ALSC Equity Fellowship program, ALSC affirms its commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion by engaging new generations of racially and ethnically diverse library professionals.
Five ALSC fellowships will be awarded to American Indian/Alaska Native/First Nations, Asian, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Middle Eastern, and/or Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander individuals who commit to service within ALSC and demonstrate a capacity for future leadership. Fellowship recipients will receive funding for two-year ALSC and ALA memberships and one year of conference registrations and travel stipends for ALA Midwinter and ALA Annual. Fellowship recipients will also receive mentorship from members of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion within ALSC Task Force. The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion within ALSC Task Force (http://www.ala.org/alsc/aboutalsc/coms/edi-within-alsc-implementation-tf) will review applications and select recipients.
Applications are now open and will close on September 14, 2018. Learn more about criteria, requirements, and how to apply: http://bit.ly/equityfellowalsc
