Lowell Wilson Scholarship
WEMTA wishes to encourage strong leaders to gain the certification required for serving as Library Media Specialists in our schools. Applicants must be a member of WEMTA, currently enrolled in a Wisconsin library-media education program, working toward a 902 license, living in Wisconsin, and planning to work in a Wisconsin school. Preference will be given to practicing, certified teachers in a Wisconsin school including those who are working as library media specialists on an emergency license.
A scholarship of $1,500, which is funded by the WEMTA Permanent Endowment Trust (PET), is provided to cover tuition costs for graduate level coursework leading to Library Media Specialist licensure. Recipients also receive a year's membership in WEMTA.
Applications must be received by December 15.
Recipients will be notified in February. Recipients are expected to serve on a WEMTA committee or participate in another WEMTA leadership role within two years of receipt of the scholarship.
