I heard about the Miriam Braverman Memorial Award when I was in library school and applied for but did not receive it- perhaps you would have better luck!
It’s open to LIS graduate students and is directed at those interested in the profession’s connections with activism and social justice. Named in honor of Miriam Braverman, the awards committee “seeks papers concerned with an aspect of the social responsibilities of librarians, libraries, or librarianship.” The winner will have their paper published in the journal Progressive Librarian and will receive a $300 travel stipend to the ALA conference in New Orleans this summer.
I was reminded of the award this afternoon via Radical Reference and wanted to blog about this amazing opportunity. (If you end up winning and decide to go to the ALA conference, let me know and maybe we can chat about radical librarianship over some tasty vegan jambalaya). 🙂
