Applicants must: be a resident of Florida and have some experience in a Florida library; be admitted to an accredited program at a Florida college or university or to a library/information graduate degree program at FSU or USF; commit to working in a Florida library for a minimum of one year after graduation; and be an FLA member in good standing. The applicant must also write an essay and have three letters of reference sent.

The scholarship has been available from a dedicated fund since 1995. This fund is replenished through donations and fundraising activities. The primary fundraising activity is the Silent Auction held at the FLA Annual Conference, which USF SLIS donated to this year.

Congratulations Alicia!
