In order to apply, please send the following:

  • A letter of recommendation (on institutional letterhead) from a LIS instructor

  • The following application, which can be found here
Please send all of the above to the Chair of the Honors & Awards Committee by September 1, 2017.

$250 will be awarded to each recipient after the close of the SC/MLA Annual Meeting.
After the meeting, a brief (250-300 word) report about the meeting will be submitted by the successful applicant(s) and published in the SC/MLA’s newsletter, Southern Expressions.

Good luck!
