School Library Media Scholarships

The Tennessee Association of School Librarians (TASL), as part of its commitment to increase the ranks of individuals within the school library profession, has created the TASL School Library Media Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial assistance to worthy students pursuing graduate studies leading to a Master’s degree in library science or certification in school library.

The TASL School Library Media Scholarship will be awarded to two students who are enrolled in a school media program at a Tennessee college or university that is approved to certify Library Information Specialists. A one-time grant of $1,000 each will be given to two students who have demonstrated leadership potential in working with students, teachers, and administrators.

Mrs. Clara Hasbrouck will evaluate all applications for this scholarship. Recipients will be selected based on the following criteria: demonstration of financial need, scholastic ability, response to essay question regarding career goals and educational objectives, strength of references, and commitment to work in a Tennessee school library for at least one year upon completion of graduate program.

Application deadline: TBA
