2012-2013 FALIS Directory

We have just received our hard copy of the Financial Assisitance for Library and Information Studies (FALIS) directory for the 2012-2013 academic year! This valuable resource is published annually by the ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR) and aims to assist both current and potential LIS students in their search for financial assistance.

You can find the full directory online (FALIS Directory PDF), and guidance on ALA scholarship opportunities here:



In this directory, you will find financial assistance offered in the U.S. and Canada by:

  • National, state, and provincial library associations, foundations, and agencies
  • Academic institutions
  • Local libraries

National and regional awards in the U.S. and Canada are listed in this directory as well. In order to ensure accurate, and complete information, ALA encourages granting bodies to submit updates when information changes. ALA also encourages current and potential LIS students to look for financial assistance offered through local groups, clubs, and unions that may not be listed in this directory. You may also check with your local library for general scholarship books and college directories.

Advancing, promoting, and supporting libraries and the library profession is one of great importance to ALA, and the Mississippi Library Commission. We would be more than happy to assist you in your research!
