The Council of Chief Librarians (CCL) announces a new scholarship award for community college library leaders. The purpose of the CCL Library Leadership Scholarship is to encourage and support the leadership development of community college library leaders. The CCL Library Leadership Scholarship subsidizes the attendance for a library leader to be an active participant in a leadership training, institute, or seminar. A list of recommended leadership programs is provided.
Applicants must be a CCC library leader (common titles include library dean, director, department chair, head librarian, and/or coordinator). Scholarship recipients are required to write an article about their leadership experience for CCL Outlook and/or present on their leadership experience at the annual CCL Deans, Directors, & Department Chairs meeting.
The award for the CCL Library Leadership Scholarship is up to §3¨000†. Scholarship funding is intended for costs of registration, accommodations, and transportation as needed. The award may not cover all expenses depending on the program costs and location.
