Now accepting applications for 2012 Scholars!

Mix IT Up! is now accepting applications for 2012 scholars!  Scholars must be planning to attend the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2012.

Mix IT Up! scholars gain experience in youth advocacy librarianship through their coursework and opportunities to work in long-term partnerships with organizations that provide services to youth.  They complete courses in both community informatics and in youth services, and will provide mentoring to future Mix IT Up! scholars.

Mix IT Up! particularly seeks applications from those who have been traditionally underrepresented in LIS—American Indian, Latino/as, African American, LGBTQ, working-class and first-generation college students.
