2024 Scholarship program

REFORMA Colorado supports active recruitment of bilingual and bicultural library staff to meet the information needs of the Latino and Spanish-speaking community.

The REFORMA Colorado Scholarship provides financial assistance to encourage and enable Latino/a/x/e, Hispanic, or Chicano/a identifying individuals to pursue or advance a career in Library and Information Science. REFORMA Colorado established in 2021 a $1,000 scholarship to be awarded annually for the academic year.  It is granted for graduate study in the field of Library and Information Science.  The $1,000 scholarship can be used to help pay for costs incurred during the 2024/2025 academic school year.
