Applications for the 2017 Northern Ohio Technical Services Librarians (NOTSL) Scholarships are now being accepted. Scholarship(s) will be awarded at the discretion of the NOTSL Scholarship Committee, not to exceed $1,500, dependent upon need and number of applicants.

Applicants must either be currently working in an Ohio library in a professional, paraprofessional, or support position in a technical services area, or be students (residing or studying in Ohio) currently taking coursework in librarianship. The content of the proposed educational activity must relate to technical services, cataloging, serials, acquisitions, preservation, processing or management of technical services.  Typically funded activities can include costs for workshops, conferences, coursework, professional meetings or research, but not training required by an employer. Applicants must specify the nature and cost of proposed activities in order for the Scholarship Board to properly determine eligibility and the allocation of funds.

Scholarships will be applied for the calendar year, from January to December of 2017.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, November 30, 2016 and recipients will receive notification no later than December 2016.
