FLS Randall Enos Scholarship

New York Library Association’s (NYLA) Friends of Libraries Section (FLS) Executive Board is proud to announce a brand new scholarship named for its President Emeritus Randall Enos. The scholarship will provide $500 each for two FLS members to attend the NYLA Annual Conference in odd-numbered years.

Applications are now being accepted for 2019. The Enos Scholarship will be given to two members of FLS to attend the NYLA Annual Conference this year. Applicants must be active in a local Friends of the Library group. One scholarship will be awarded to a first-time attendee at the conference and the second award will go to someone who may, or may not, have previously attended.

See the complete coverage of this exciting new scholarship opportunity in the March 2019 issue of Friends News and Notes. The centerfold of the newsletter contains the entire scholarship packet.

The deadline to submit an application is 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 15. Please direct questions to anne.andrianos@gmail.com.
