[BKARTS] RBS $cholarships


In June, the <http://www.imls.gov/>Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), a federal agency, made a $122,000 grant to <http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/>Rare Book School (RBS) for new scholarships as part of the agency's "Librarians for the 21st Century" program: a total of 50 IMLS-funded scholarships will be awarded in the current RBS scholarship cycle, and an additional 50 awards will be available in each of the 2006 and 2007 scholarship cycles.

The RBS Scholarship Committee is grateful to those who will help advertise the availability of RBS scholarships by forwarding, downloading, posting, or otherwise distributing <http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/scholarships/Scholarships.cur.pdf>the flyer describing this rapidly expanding program. The deadline for applying for a Rare Book School scholarship each year is two weeks away: October 1st.

Those seeking RBS scholarships submit applications without reference to any particular RBS course or session, and scholarships in turn are awarded without reference to admission to any particular course. Persons awarded scholarships will have credit in the RBS tuition bank that they can then use to pay for any course to which they are thereafter admitted during the following two years. Successful applicants will be notified on November 15th. In making its awards, the RBS Scholarship Committee will give special consideration to applicants who represent under-served communities.

The RBS scholarship fund also receives annual support from the <http://www.bccbooks.org/>Book Club of California and from the <http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/scholarships//oldbooks/friends/>Friends of Rare Book School, and it has recently received support from the <http://www.delmas.org/>Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation. See the RBS web site for <http://www.virginia.edu/oldbooks/scholarships/davis.html>further information about the school's scholarship program.

The current RBS Scholarship Committee comprises Dr Susan M. Allen (Chief Librarian, <http://www.getty.edu/>Getty Research Institute), chair; John Bidwell (Astor Curator of Printed Books and Bindings, <http://www.morganlibrary.org/>Morgan Library) through 2005; David Zeidberg (Avery Director, <http://www.huntington.org/>Huntington Library) through 2006; Melissa Mead (Digital and Visual Resources Librarian, <http://www.lib.rochester.edu/>University of Rochester Libraries) through 2007; and Nathaniel Adams (Assistant Director, Programs, Rare Book School) through 2008. Vic Zoschak (<http://www.tavbooks.com/>Tavistock<http://www.tavbooks.com/> Books, Alameda, CA) will join the Committee in 2006.
