UNT to offer 5 more slots for Public Librarians to get a PhD in 2005!!

University of North Texas School of Library and Information Sciences has just been informed that we have received additional funds for a grant to help prepare faculty to teach public librarians. If you or anyone you know is
interested in this opportunity, please read the attached letter. This
Distance-Independent Ph.D. Program provides two years paid tuition, with
travel assistance to institutes and computer broadband connectivity.

The deadline for the application to be complete is December 15;
however, since this notification is coming out so late we will allow the
following exception:

– If your SLIS application, vita/resume, writing sample, and
personal statement have been received at SLIS by December 15, and

– If you have started the graduate school application process to
the point where everything (transcripts, GRE scores, etc.) have been
requested to be sent to UNT by December 15,

– Then, we will grant an extension to the deadline. Everything
for the application process must be requested by December 15, but we
will allow until January 14, 2005 for everything to be received at UNT.
Since there is a break at most colleges and universities during this
time, it is imperative that the process be well under way by December 15
to meet the extended deadline.
