Dear Colleagues,


The Atlantic Provinces Library Association administers the Carin Alma E. Somers Scholarship Trust. This trust provides an annual scholarship, valued at approximately $2,000, in her name to assist a Canadian citizen who is an Atlantic Provinces resident needing financial assistance to undertake or complete the academic requirements leading to a degree in Library and Information Science.


As a student in excellent standing, we are pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2015 Carin Alma E. Somers Scholarship is K-Lee Fraser. K-Lee has a BA with combined honors in Sociology and Psychology,  and a MA in Sociology from Dalhousie University. She is currently completing her MLIS program at McGill University. 


Congratulations K-Lee!
