Education

ALA administers a number of scholarship funds donated to support Latvian students in a variety of fields of study. We invite all Latvian students active in their Latvian communities to apply for a scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year. Students studying for their Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at a college or university in the United States are eligible to apply after their first year of study. Applications, along with two letters of reference are due June 1. All applications will be evaluated, and students will be notified at the end of June. Scholarships will be paid directly to the university the following fall.

Apply for a scholarship to the 2×2 youth seminar this year in Canada or Latgale! ALA’s Office of Education is offering scholarships for both seminars – 10 participants of the Latgale event will have their registration covered, and 10 participants in Canada will have $250 of the fee covered. Please send a request letter (2 – 3 paragraphs) to the Director of Education Andra Zommere (azommers@sbcglobal.net).
