West Virginia Library Association Scholarship

Since 1990, the West Virginia Library Association has worked to increase the number of librarians in the State of West Virginia by awarding scholarships to WVLA members pursuing a masters' degree from an ALA-accredited institution or approved library certificate program. Money in the continuing education and scholarship funds is donated by members of WVLA and others. Please consider donating to the fund when renewing your WVLA membership.

WVLA members interested in applying for a scholarship should complete the application form and supply the supporting documents by the deadline shown below. The Continuing Education and Scholarship Committee welcomes applications from WVLA members for continuing education workshops, conferences, and online workshops as well as applications for scholarships for the next academic year.  Applications for scholarships will be considered once a year with awards made at the Annual Conference.  Please see the application links below for further requirements of the application process.
