ABC CHILDREN'S INSTITUTE 2017 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION
April 5-7, 2017
For ABC Children's Institute 2017, booksellers can apply for a publisher sponsored scholarship in one of two ways: by having submitted a business card to ABA during one of the fall regional trade shows and/or by completing the form below. Scholarships are open to booksellers from ABA member stores that did not have a Children's Institute scholarship winner in 2015 or 2016. Deadline is January 31, 2017. (This form may be submitted once per person.)
The American Booksellers Association, a national not-for-profit trade organization, works with booksellers and industry partners to ensure the success and profitability of independently owned book retailers, and to assist in expanding the community of the book.
Independent bookstores act as community anchors; they serve a unique role in promoting the open exchange of ideas, enriching the cultural life of communities, and creating economically vibrant neighborhoods.
