Centennial Library Scholarship Award in Library Science

The scholarship encourages the next generation of Christian librarians by providing graduate school tuition support for the Master's degree in Library and Information Science. The Centennial Library faculty used a generous gift from a 1997 Cedarville University alumnus to establish the scholarship in 1998. Students may apply during their senior year and for two years after graduation. The award is made directly to the graduate school in which the recipient is enrolled for the M.L.I.S.

Application and Award Process

  • Applicants must complete the Award application form >(including a short essay) between January 15 and February 5 and provide a letter of reference from a Cedarville University faculty member.
  • Applicants must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 and must begin an MLIS program within 2 years of graduation. Students from all majors are eligible to apply.
  • Applicants will be asked to participate in an interview with the library faculty scholarship committee.
  • The award will be presented to the recipient at the annual University Academic Honor's Day chapel.
