Dewey Fellowships are awarded to three NYLA members, selected by designated Section, to attend the NYLA Annual Conference. Dewey Fellows are chosen on the basis of the following criteria:
1) five or more years of experience as a librarian,
2) record of accomplishment in the library profession, and
3) involvement in activities to advance the library community.
The Dewey Fellowship pays for up to $1250 of the cost of attendance of the 2007 NYLA Annual Conference. Additionally, each Dewey Fellow will receive a $100 Gift Certificate for use at the NYLA store, and will be acknowledged on NYLA’s website, at the Annual Conference and in the NYLA Bulletin.
