University Libraries is pleased to announce the Sixth Annual Student Scholarship Competition. Eligible students include Kent Campus students in good standing with the University, who will be Sophomores, Juniors or Seniors in the 2019-2020 academic year. Thanks to the generosity of the University Libraries National Advisory Committee and the Friends of University Libraries, we are able to award multiple scholarships for 2019/2020 - each for $1,000! The awards may be used for tuition, books, or fees, and may be won only once by a student. The funds will be applied to the student's account by the Bursar’s office - half in the Fall semester of the award year and the other half in the Spring semester.
Essays are to be at least 600 but not more than 1,000 words. Successful essays will be focused, thoughtful, and free from grammatical and spelling errors. The winning essays will be published, so please do not include sensitive personal information in your essay.
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 for the 2014-2015 academic year. We are sincerely grateful to the University Libraries National Advisory Committee and the Friends of University Libraries 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.
