The H.W. Wilson Foundation has announced the continuation of its support of education in library and information science with a new round of scholarship grants.

This year’s scholarship program, the 13th consecutive grant effort, will deliver funding of $10,000 to each of 57 schools. The total $575,000 will be distributed across four years, from 2008 to 2011.

The major goals of the program are to attract potential librarians to the field and to support qualified students.

The effort allows each school to distribute its grant in accordance with its own scholarship criteria. The total sum may be divided to accommodate each institution’s particular needs.
