Potential students:

Thank you for your interest in applying for the program “Librarians as Catalysts for Community Health,” (C4CH) a program sponsored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). IMLS is funding twelve students to take part in this program. The students will earn an American Library Association (ALA) Accredited Master’s Degree through this cross-disciplinary program that aims to train students in health librarianship.

Classes will be drawn from librarianship, health professions, and medical informatics. Students will take two classes per semester while they remain working in their community with professionals in the health care, human services, or information service sectors. We seek an enthusiastic, diverse group of students from urban and rural areas in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Utah, and Wyoming that have been identified as traditionally underserved in health care. Students will work with mentors in order to help identify and develop health and wellness materials for wide distribution through regional and national information venues, including the National Library of Medicine. In this application, you will be asked about your commitment to your community, your career aspirations, and why you are interested in applying for this grant. 

Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university and meet all requirements of the University of Missouri’s Graduate School, as well as the requirements of the LIS Program of SISLT. Information about SISLT is here: More information is here:

We aim to make decisions regarding participants in the program in November 2019 so that students can begin taking classes in January. Applications received before October 15 will be given priority. If selected, you will receive a laptop computer and orientation to the program in December so that you can prepare for this exciting educational adventure! Again, thank you for your interest.
