If you are a current student at or recent graduate (within 3 years) of an ALA-accredited LIS program or AASL-recognized master's program - and have a strong interest in intellectual freedom issues - consider applying for the Gordon M. Conable Conference Scholarship.
Now in its sixth year, the Conable Scholarship has proved to be a great way for those new to the profession to attend the ALA Annual Conference, learn about the latest in intellectual freedom, and get involved with the Freedom to Read Foundation.
To get a sense of what you'll get with the Conable Scholarship, read some reports from past Conable winners.
This year's ALA Annual Conference will be in Chicago June 27-July 2 and will have some tremendous intellectual freedom-related programs and events.
Note: if you are an LIS professor or know someone who you think would make a great Conable Scholar, please pass along this tremendous opportunity!
