ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP
The Association of Jewish Libraries awards an annual academic scholarship to a promising student with a history of participating in Judaic studies or libraries, accepted into or attending or an accredited graduate school of library and information science. This scholarship is merit-based rather than needs-based.

CONFERENCE SCHOLARSHIP
AJL will now also provide conference subvention for attendance at the Association of Jewish Libraries’ annual conference to a promising student with a history of participating in Judaic studies or libraries, accepted into or attending or an accredited graduate school of library and information science. Free full conference registration, travel and (shared) room is included. As such, conference attendance is required. This award is merit-based rather than needs-based.

Both awards also include a service component at the conference to benefit the Association of Jewish Libraries to be determined by the awardees and committee, one option could be to volunteer during the conference or write up their experience for the AJL Newsletter.
Applicants must indicate which award(s) (student scholarship or conference subvention) they seek.
