Full Graduate Scholarships for Maryland School Librarians

If you are currently a teacher in an underserved region of Maryland, you may apply for a full scholarship to McDaniel’s School Librarianship graduate program before the Oct. 15 deadline.

Twelve full scholarships will be awarded, thanks to a prestigious 2012 Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program Grant of $239,649 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The College will also convert the master’s degree program to a completely online delivery to accommodate these students, who will most probably come from Maryland’s far eastern, southern and western regions. Currently the program is a mix of two-thirds online and one-third face-to-face coursework.

Professor of Library Science Dr. Mona Kerby, who won the grant for McDaniel, says the scholarships will go a long way in improving education in high-needs schools. “It means that not only will a dozen teachers benefit but every child in their schools will benefit from having a professional librarian on staff,” she says.
