Funding: George A. Strait Minority Scholarship & Fellowship, April 1

George A. Strait Minority Scholarship & Fellowship

Deadline: Applications due by April 1, 2020.

Established by AALL in partnership with Thomson Reuters, the endowed George A. Strait Minority Scholarship & Fellowship honors the memory of long-time AALL member and distinguished law librarian George A. Strait. The application process opens on January 6, 2020.

The Scholarship was established in 1990. It is awarded annually to members of a minority group who are degree candidates in an accredited library or law school, and who intend to have a career in law librarianship. Scholarship recipients will be announced in May and the awards will be disbursed in June 2020.

The George A. Strait Fellowship, introduced in March 2019, will match a host institution with each selected fellow based on interest and availability. Each fellow will receive a paid fellowship in a law library, membership in AALL for one year, and a free registration to AALL’s Annual Meeting. The host institution will also assign a mentor to the fellow. Applicants may specify their geographic preference, as well as the type of law library where they wish to receive their training.

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
