The Syracuse University School of Information Studies (iSchool) will be hosting an online information session for the recently-announced Expect More Library Scholarship, a scholarship program for students interested in pursuing their MS in Library and Information Science (LIS) or MS in Library and Information Science: School Media (LISSM).
On Tuesday, February 17 at 7:00 PM EST the iSchool's graduate recruitment team will offer a special information session to talk about the scholarship and the iSchool's LIS and LISSM programs.
Participants will be able to virtually meet current LIS students, members of the recruitment team, and iSchool Professor David Lankes, who will explain what kind of opportunities Expect More Library Scholars will experience.
Expect More Library Scholars receive:
- A 50% tuition award
- Pairing with a specific faculty mentor, who is carefully matched to the student's career field of interest, for the two years of the graduate education program
- A paid faculty assistant position working directly with their faculty mentor on projects in the Expect More Library Scholar's field of interest. The position is 20 hours per week during the academic year, for the two years of the program
- A $1,000 travel fund for library conferences, industry networking events, and professional development activities
Those interested in the information session can register online. For additional information about graduate study at the iSchool, visit the iSchool's graduate programs website, or contact iGrad@syr.edu.
