***Apply Now for 2009 - 2010 OLA MLS Scholarships

The application process is open for Oregon residents enrolled or 
planning to enroll full-time in a graduate course of study for the 
Masters in Library Science degree for the 2009 - 2010 academic year. 
Applications from eligible students are sought for over $17,000 in 
scholarship awards. Current recipients of OLA MLS scholarships may 
reapply annually for continuing funding for up to three years of awards.

The scholarship application process deadline is March 2, 2009. Before 
applying read OLA's Scholarship Program guidelines and eligibility 
requirements.  OLA's scholarship application and requirements are 
available as an electronic eApplication, through the Oregon Student 
Assistance Commission (OSAC), at www.GetCollegeFunds.org 

Select OSAC Scholarships under "Quick Links" on the left.  OLA's 
scholarship application requirements are described by entering a search 
for Scholarship Code 471 or for the Oregon Library Association.  For the 
eApplication, go to www.getcollegefunds.org/eapp.html

At the OSAC site, you can read about OLA's program, and search the more 
than 340 scholarships OSAC manages. The scholarship application process 
is confidential, and there is no fee to apply. All OLA scholarship 
applications must be submitted to OSAC postmarked or hand-delivered no 
later than March 2, 2009.  Be sure to read the eligibility rules, and 
submit all required documents.

The OSAC office is located at 1500 Valley River Drive, Suite 100, 
Eugene, OR 97401. Applicants who submit their completed application by 
February 16 are entered into drawings for twenty-three $500 Early Bird 
awards.  The Early Bird awards are funded by private donations.

Scholarship Application Booklets to college financial aid offices and 
Oregon high schools. OLA'S scholarship information is also available in

Funding for this second round of scholarships is provided by a Library 
Services and Technology Grant administered by the Oregon State Library 
and through the generosity of OLA members who have donated to the 
scholarship fund. OLA members are encouraged to make donations to
