KLA Educational Foundation Scholarship Application

    Essay Requirements

    500 words maximum. The scholarship is not based on financial need, so please do not make that part of the essay.

    Your essay should not include the questions, but should provide concrete examples of all of the following:

    • What work have you done – either as a paid worker or as a volunteer – that has helped you in your library and information studies?

    • What are your career plans after library school?

    • What ideas and/or plans do you have to make a difference in the community you plan to serve as a librarian?
