MLGSCA Scholarship for Paraprofessionals and Students in Health Sciences Libraries

The Medical Library Group of Southern California and Arizona (MLGSCA) continually and vigorously supports the recruitment of outstanding candidates to the profession of health sciences librarianship. One mechanism employed by MLGSCA is through the provision of scholarships.

  • One scholarship of $1500 is awarded annually to an excellent library/information science student who has shown evidence of interest in pursuing the health sciences specialization in librarianship.Due Dec. 15th.
  • A second scholarship in the amount of $1500 shall be given annually to provide support for a paraprofessional currently working in a health sciences library and who has shown evidence of interest in pursuing the health sciences specialization in librarianship. It is expected that the funds will be used to support the recipient's educational goals leading to the professional degree in librarianship. Moreover, recipients will be expected to show evidence of this expectation having been met in form of documentation, i.e., transcripts of completed coursework.
