The SALALM Scholarship has been established to encourage professional and leadership development in Latin American and Caribbean Studies librarianship. To be awarded annually commencing in December 2011, the $1000 is for a master’s candidate in an archival studies or ALA-accredited library or information studies program.

Since its founding in 1956, the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials, or SALALM, has provided the only national and international forum focused on Latin American studies librarianship, library collections and services. The SALALM Scholarship award will include a one-year membership in the organization.

Who Should Apply:

Applicants able to demonstrate a strong interest in Latin America, the Caribbean or their diaspora, and who have career aspirations involving service to users seeking information about, or researching topics involving the Latin American or Caribbean region, are urged to apply. More information
