The Council on Library and Information Resources is offering a fellowship worth $8,000 to a student planning a career in information management.
The A.R. Zipf Fellowship is awarded annually to a student currently enrolled in graduate school who shows promise for leadership and technical achievement in information management. Students in information science, information technology, engineering or business are eligible to apply.
The Zipf Fellowship was established in honor of A.R. Zipf, a pioneer in information management. Zipf invented the system all banks now use to route financial information. During his career, he served on the Board of Regents of the National Library of Medicine and at the National Commission of Libraries and Information Science.
Completed applications must be postmarked no later than April 1. The winner will be notified by May 31.
