The Georgia Library Association awards two scholarships annually to students completing a master’s degree in library science. The Hubbard Scholarship, a $3,000 award, is intended to recruit excellent candidates for librarianship and defray some of the costs of their education. The Beard Scholarship, in the amount of $1,000, is for applicants who show strong potential for leadership in the library profession. Recipients of both awards must agree to work for at least one year in Georgia following graduation but need not be residents of Georgia to apply.
The deadline to apply for the 2012 scholarships is May 21.
