ACRL-Oregon seeks to foster collaboration between academic librarians and
school librarians. The role of school librarians is vitally important and
is in many ways interrelated with the work of academic librarians and the
students we all serve.  This year ACRL-OR has up to $1000.00 of scholarship
funds still available to support projects.

*How can the scholarship be used?*
This funding opportunity covers any collaboration between at least one

   (OASL, regional conferences, or others)
   - Creation of programming, such as a conference, workshop, unconference,
   or pre-conference
   - Work on a collaborative research project
   -  Something else we haven’t thought of!
