Ronald Jobe Scholarship

The School of Library, Archival and Information Studies has established the Ronald Jobe Children’s Literature Scholarship for students in the Master of Arts in Children’s Literature Program. Dr. Jobe, professor emeritus in the Department of Language and Literacy Education, has been deeply involved in this interdisciplinary children’s literature program. Dr. Jobe established the Children’s Literature Roundtables across Canada, co-ordinated the Serendipity children’s literature conference, and has spent years promoting Canadian children’s literature worldwide, through organizations such as the International Board on Books for Young People, of which he was the first non-European President. Applications are adjudicated by a committee of faculty in the MACL Program, in consultation with School of Library, Archival and Information Studies and the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
