Ten candidates a year for three years are eligible to be selected for this Master of Library Science (MLS) Degree Fellowship program. Potential candidates who have applied to IU SLIS, and completed the fellowship application must also request two letters of recommendation from people (not relatives) who can speak to their professionalism and leadership potential.

This is a great little scholarship if your pursuing a teaching degree. In fact, I had this scholarship ages ago and I’m very glad to see it’s still around!
