Applications for the American Association of Law Libraries scholarships, which provide financial support for graduate study in law and law librarianship, are now available on AALLNET.
The LEXIS-NEXIS-sponsored James F. Connolly Congressional Information Scholarship is awarded to a law librarian who is interested in pursuing a law degree with preference given to those individuals demonstrating an interest in government publications.
The following scholarships are made possible in part by funding from AALL members and from the John Johnson LEXIS-NEXIS Memorial Scholarship: Type 1: Library Degree for Law School Graduates; Type II: Library School Graduates Attending Law School; Type III: Library Degree for Non-Law School Graduates; Type IV: Library School Graduates Seeking a Non-Law Degree; and Type V: Law Librarians in Continuing Education Courses.
Last year, $31,000 was awarded in scholarship funds.
Applications forms are available at the American Association of Law Librarians web site, AALLNET (http://www.aallnet.org/services/scholarships.asp) or from AALL Headquarters, 312.939.4764 x 10. The deadline for all applications is April 1, 2001.
