Since its founding in 1956, the Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials (SALALM) has engaged in a wide variety of projects and programs designed to advance the scholarly study of Latin America, the Caribbean, Iberia and the Latino/a diasporas. We are offering a scholarship in the fall semester of $1,000 to a Master’s degree candidate in library and information studies in ALA-accredited programs or in archival studies programs with emphasis on application in academic and research settings. Scholarship candidates should have completed successfully at least one quarter or semester of study in one of these MA programs, and hold a strong interest in Latin America, the Caribbean, Iberia or the Latino/a diasporas.
In addition, this year we initiate a travel grant of up to $1000 for SALALM Scholarship awardees to attend our annual conference. Eligibility includes a substantive contribution to the conference program. Details at: http://salalm.org/about/scholarships-and-awards/salalm-scholarship-awardee-travel-grant/
The poster (see link below) offers a brief overview of the SALALM Scholarship. I hope that the poster can be appropriately displayed for viewing by students interested in careers in academic libraries or archives. In advance, I appreciate your assistance in bringing this award to their attention.
