The American Library Association is huge, has lots of divisions, and even more awards, grants, and scholarships. ALA now has a searchable database. It takes a lot of time and energy to look through the list and even more commitment to apply or nominate a person or project. Often you hear that some awards are not given out because no one applied for them. More frustrating is when you apply, get others to write supporting letters, and then hear nothing -- not even that you didn't make the top candidates list. It means that serious applicants need to follow up. Follow up regularly. Regular feedback from the award/grant/scholarship contact would be appreciated, too.
Below is a sampling of ALA's alphabetical list, but searchable database is better option. This list might inspire a few librarians and library advocates to sharpen their writing talents.
