NCompass Live: Scholarship and Internship Grant Opportunities through New IMLS Grant Program


Published on

The Nebraska Library Commission and our partner organization, Central Community College, along with our supporting organizations (Nebraska Educational Media Association, Nebraska Library Association, University of Missouri, University of Nebraska at Omaha), will foster recruitment, education, and 21st century skills development for at least 165 pre-professional and professional students through scholarships, internships, and stipends. The Cultivating Rural Librarians' Technology Skills program adds value to students' formal educational experiences through social and face-to-face networking opportunities and through technology skills training. It will also recruit promising high school and college students and diverse library personnel to ensure that Nebraskans receive library services provided by knowledgeable librarians who represent a range of backgrounds and talents.
Join Mary Jo Ryan, Grant Project Director, and Laura Johnson, Continuing Education Coordinator, as they review the goals and objectives of the grant and discuss the various activities that will take place in the next three years.
