Support the future of Academic Librarianship!

ACRL is able to award scholarships to academic and research librarians and library staff to attend the ACRL Conference thanks to donors like you. Consider making a tax-deductible donation to the 2019 Conference Scholarship Campaign, and making a difference in the profession.

ACRL is strongly dedicated to equity, diversity, and inclusion. The Scholarships Committee gives preference to applicants who are from diverse cultural/ethnic backgrounds, serve under-represented groups, and have not previously been awarded an ACRL scholarship.

“The ACRL 2017 conference in Baltimore was a great experience for me as a young professional. I was still a student at the time of this year’s conference, and while conference attendance is vital at this stage to gaining an understanding of this multifaceted field, as well as developing a network, funding is always an immense challenge. I would not have been able to attend this conference without the ACRL Student Scholarship, and I am so very grateful for the generosity of scholarship fund donors.” Emily Vickers, ACRL 2017 Conference Scholarship Recipient

Student, Indiana University
