The ARL Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and ARL member libraries, offers a stipend of up to $10,000 to attract students from underrepresented groups to careers in academic and research libraries. These stipends can be coupled with any other financial aid to provide an extra incentive for completing library school as well as providing the opportunity to work in an ARL library upon graduation. This initiative reflects the commitment of ARL members to create a diverse academic and research library community that will better meet the new challenges of global competition and changing demographics.
Applications for the 2005-2007 Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce are due on Tuesday, July 5,2005. For more information about the ARL's Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce, or to download an application, please visit:
