Scholarship Description

The Ginny Frankenthaler Memorial Scholarship in Library Science is made possible through the generosity of of Bud Frankenthaler, husband of Ginny Frankenthaler. Mrs. Frankenthaler believed that our free library system is the basis for a good life and that the greatest gifts a human being can have are good memories and education, both of which are supplied free by our public library system.

The purpose of the scholarship is to recruit beginning professional librarians who possess potential for leadership and commitment to service in libraries in the Southeastern United States*. The scholarship provides financial assistance towards completion of the graduate degree in library science from an institution accredited by the American Library Association. The recipient must be completing their senior year at an accredited college or university or be a graduate of such an institution.

The $1,000 scholarship is awarded every two years (on even years). The recipient of the scholarship will be notified in July, with funding to begin with the fall school term.
