DCLA's Ruth Fine Memorial Student Loan application deadline is April 15, 2009. Please see the original notice and the website link below for more details.
February 15, 2009
The Student Financial Assistance Committee (SFAC) of the District of Columbia Library Association (DCLA) is pleased to announce the 2009 competition for its Ruth Fine Memorial Student Loans of $5,000 each in support of graduate library/information science education. These interest-free loans, which the SFAC can forgive upon an awardee's maintaining a 3.0 or better GPA for the twelve (12) months following the award while enrolled at an ALA-accredited graduate program, have been made to students in DC, MD, and VA since 2002 thanks to a bequest from Ms. Fine (a past president of DCLA). The SFAC can grant 2 to 3 loans per year.
The SFAC will accept applications, letters of recommendation, and other supporting materials by mail between February 15, 2009, and April 15, 2009, and the committee will announce the winners of the loans at DCLA's annual banquet in May, 2009.
