08 Apr 2017 9:49 AM | Yvonne Dooley (Administrator)

The Student Financial Assistance Committee (SFAC) of the District of Columbia Library Association (DCLA) is pleased to announce the 2017 competition for its Ruth Fine Memorial Student Loan of $6,000 in support of ALA-accredited graduate library/information science education. This interest-free loan, which the SFAC can forgive upon an awardee’s maintaining a 3.0 or better GPA for the twelve months following the award, has been made to students in the DC metro area since 2002 thanks to a bequest from Ms. Fine (a past president of DCLA).

The SFAC will accept applications, letters of recommendation, and other supporting materials by mail or email from now until April 30, 2017.  Applicants must be a member of DCLA.

Preference is given to Washington, DC residents or someone employed in the District of Columbia.  For complete information, please visit

Please contact Jennifer Manning, (Chair, DCLA Student Financial Assistance Committee) at 202-707-7565 or with any questions about the Ruth Fine Memorial Student Loans.
