2017 MHSLA Member Scholarships

The Michigan Health Science Libraries Association (MHSLA) is pleased to offer three scholarships for the annual conference:

  1. The New Member scholarship is for a member of MHSLA who has never attended the MHSLA annual conference before.
  2. The Member scholarship is for any MHSLA who needs support in order to attend the annual conference.
  3. The Diane LeBar Memorial Scholarship is for any MHSLA member employed in a hospital library or equivalent. This scholarship is generously funded by the LeBar Family in memory of Diane LeBar, a longstanding, active member of MHSLA. Diane was very happy to be a part of MHSLA and always enjoyed attending the organization’s meetings and events.

2017 MHSLA Student Scholarships

The Michigan Health Science Libraries Association (MHSLA) is pleased to offer two student scholarships for the annual conference. Applicants must be either a student in a Michigan Library Science program (e.g. Library Technician degree; Masters in Library Science, either on campus or via distance learning) or a library science student working in a Michigan health sciences library taking classes online in a non-Michigan program. The scholarship is no longer limited to just two universities. Preference will be given to students interested in health science librarianship.

The scholarship includes full conference registration, including meetings, workshops, lodging, meals, and mileage. Scholarship recipients are expected to write a brief summary of their conference experience for the MHSLA newsletter and assist at the registration/hospitality desk.
