In the fall of 2013, University Libraries created an endowment to fund the first University Libraries Student Assistant Scholarship
at Kent State to be 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 grow and additional scholarships will be available in the coming years.
