I know that many of you have already seen this call already through the list but I just would like to encourage to apply. I know that these scholarships take time but beyond the money you get, you also show your future employers that you have motivation, focus, and writing skills. I think many of you are doing projects in 709 about YA or working already with them, so in a way, already committed to advancing research in Young Adult literacy. Please, give it a serious thought and consideration.
The deadline is November 15th and the scholarship covers tuition and fees in the amount of up to $10,000 for Spring 2015. Please, read the qualifications and application requirements carefully.
