  2. Agree to contribute to the planning of the 2018 Institute as an OLSSI Steering Committee member.

How to Apply:

Explain in 250 words or less:
1) Why you would like to attend the 2017 Institute,
2) how you think attending OLSSI will help you, and
3) how it might enhance your library/work performance.

All applications must be written by the applicant, not their supervisor(s).

The Scholarship Contest begins at 8:00 AM, March 24, 2017. Deadline for scholarship entry is 5:00 PM, April 21, 2017. Winners will be announced on or before April 26, 2017.
