CSLA Southern Region Scholarship Opportunities

Are you in school, or do you know someone in school, to earn a Teacher-Librarian credential or Paraprofessional School Library Technician certificate? Could you use some money to help pay for that?? Then keep reading...

The California School Library Association makes every effort to support all persons working in a school library, or working toward such a job. We understand the importance of making sure that every school in California has a Teacher-Librarian and a Paraprofessional, or at least one of those if not both. Therefore, CSLA wants to make it easier for people to gain the education needed to fill those positions.

The Southern Region of CSLA is offering 3 scholarships at this time. We are offering two (2) $1,000 scholarships to assist those persons working toward a degree or credential which will qualify them to work as a professional Teacher-Librarian. We are also offering one (1) $500 scholarship to assist a school library paraprofessional in completing a school library technician or paraprofessional certificate program, or obtaining a teaching credential with the ultimate goal of pursuing a Teacher-Librarian credential.

There is an application process for these scholarships, and persons must live in the Southern Region of California. The applications and information are available at http://cslass.wikispaces.com/Scholarships, our CSLA Southern Region wiki. The applications and letters of recommendation are due by January 10, 2014. Questions?? Email Sondra Keckley, CSLA Southern Region President-Elect, at sondra_keckley@kernhigh.org .
