The Public Library Division of the Texas Library Association will award one Scholarship (stipends) of $500 to a qualified applicant currently employed in Texas public libraries. The purpose of the PLD Scholarship is to encourage TLA and PLD membership, to advance the goals and objectives of the Association, and to provide the means for supporting participation in TLA.

The stipends are available for public library employees who have not attended a TLA Conference before. Recipients will gain insight into the Public Libraries Division organization by volunteering during the conference.

An initial amount of $250 shall be made available to the stipend winners prior to the TLA Conference. The winners shall contact the TLA office (which the Scholarship Committee Chair has notified) for this advance in order to help defray pre-conference expenses. The PLD Scholarship Committee Chair will award the remaining $250 upon receipt of the conference report and receipts.
