Scholarship opportunities

From Dean Gant:

Please see the link the Generation Google Scholarship. The opportunity is targeted to students in computer science or related fields. Information Science is a related field. I am happy to advise anyone who applies on how to best to market your MIS or technically oriented LIS program for this opportunity.


A second opportunity available is the Women Techmakers Scholars Program https://www.womentechmakers.com/scholars . this program fits well for both LIS and MIS women students. “A group of female undergraduate and graduate students will be chosen from the applicant pool, and scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of each candidate’s academic background and demonstrated leadership and impact on community.”

Again for these or any opportunity that you find, I am happy to talk with you further to advise you on how to best communicate about your program and its fit.

Condolences for Dr Debra Saunders-White: Visionary Chancellor Leading Digital Transformation in Higher Education

On behalf of the School of Library and Information Sciences, I offer our condolence for the loss of Dr. Debra Saunders-White. Dr. Saunders-White inspired all of us with her courageous battle with cancer. As the eleventh chancellor of NCCU, Dr. Saunders-White was a visionary chancellor living each day touching the lives of students through the digital transformation of higher education. Dr. Saunders-White championed innovation through creative integration of information technology in higher education.  Dr. Saunders-White led path-breaking strategies to make sure that universities stay ahead of the digital divide with transformative investments in Internet access and connectivity as well as opening spaces for students for computer-driven innovation, design and fabrication. May God bless Dr. Saunders-White’s family, the NCCU community, and all those whose life she touched.

Do you enjoy seeing tasks stack up as they are completed?

Are you a little shy about instruction?

Do you need some more classwork in academic libraries or humanities librarianship?

Are you curious about the subject liaison’s portfolio and want to try it out?
