The IOBA Scholarship Committee is in the process of receiving and evaluating applications. IOBA offers up to three scholarships each year so members can continue their education and professional development. Scholarships are awarded without regard to current level of accomplishment, financial need, full- or part-time bookseller status, or length of time in the book trade. IOBA is committed to the belief that every well-educated, well-informed, and ethical bookseller is a credit to the trade and to our organization, and we consider these scholarships to be our investment in the future of bookselling.
These scholarships are available to any current IOBA member in good standing, excluding members of the Scholarship Committee and current Officers. Prospective members who are currently participating in the mentorship program are also eligible to apply, if approved by their mentor.http://www.ioba.org/pages/ioba-scholarships/
The New Collector’s Scholarship has been announced and we are now receiving applications.
The Independent Online Booksellers Association would like to contribute to the continuing education of book collectors. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that we will offer to a book collector, for the first time ever, a scholarship in the amount of $750 to be used at one of the several book seminars offered in the U.S. or the U.K.. You are not required to be a bookseller or a member of any organization to apply.
Many of our members have been to the seminars listed below, and always find book collectors present among the booksellers and librarians. If you have ever thought of attending we hope to make it a bit easier for you.
IOBA awards scholarships to support the professional development of its member booksellers. We consider the scholarships to be an investment in the future of bookselling, and we would like to include you too!
