Five GSLIS master's students have been chosen by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) as 2014 Career Enhancement Program (CEP) fellows: Alonso Avila, Raquel Flores-Clemons, Sophie Hou, Bradley Kuykendall, and Jerrod Moore.
Each year, ARL member libraries select a group of library and information science master's students to participate in this competitive program, which provides avenues for students from traditionally underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups to advance their careers in LIS. The experience, funded by ARL member libraries and the Institute of Museum and Library Services, includes a paid internship at an ARL library, mentorship by a professional librarian, the opportunity to attend the ARL Leadership Symposium, and career placement assistance.
A total of fourteen students were selected for the 2014 cohort. Congratulations to all!
