SCHOLARSHIP BACKGROUND

In the fall of 2013, University Libraries created an endowment to fund the first University Libraries undergraduate student scholarship at Kent State which was awarded in Spring 2014. We are sincerely grateful to our friends and donors for their generous contributions to financially support the scholarship. It is our hope that the fund will continue to grow and additional scholarships will be available in the coming years.
