LIS Student Award, Tuition Assistance, Up to $500

Applicant must be a UHM LIS student with at least 9 (completed) LIS course credits by August 2017, or be a May or August 2017 LIS graduate continuing towards the Advanced Certificate.

Apply online via the UH Student Scholarship site; include a statement no longer than 2 pages, describing your goals in and commitment to the library profession.

Include a copy of your unofficial transcripts (available from MyUH/STAR), and list scholarships, awards, and tuition waivers you are currently receiving. Letters of recommendations are optional but may help in evaluating your application.

Applicants are judged on leadership potential (leadership in LIS and/or professional organizations and committees), professional promise (e.g., library/information-related volunteer work, internships, practicum, and professional library employment, publications in a library/information-related area), and potential for academic success (GPA in LIS/ICS courses).

Special consideration will be given to students not receiving other scholarships or tuition waivers.
