All applicants who submit a complete MLIS program application by the deadline each year are automatically considered for an iSchool merit-based scholarship. Each year, 10-15 scholarships are awarded, and may range from covering a quarter's worth of tuition costs to a year's worth or more. If there is additional information you would like to provide the committee that you feel is relevant to your being considered for a scholarship, you can use the optional Scholarship Information section on the online application to tell us. (Please limit this response to 500 words.)
We also award scholarships to continuing students, so there will be more opportunities to receive funding after you have started the program.
MLIS students are eligible for dozens of scholarships from national and regional organizations and businesses. Deadlines vary and details may change, so please consult each scholarship’s website for more information.
