The application period for the Caroline M. Hewins Scholarship is now open until September 1, 2021.
The Caroline M. Hewins Scholarship Fund was established in 1926 as a tribute to one of the great pioneers in American Librarianship in special recognition of her creative work for children throughout the country. The Fund is administered by the Hartford Public Library as trustee, and current income permits an annual scholarship award of $4,000.
The Scholarship is open to those who plan to specialize in library work with children: who have received, or are about to receive a four year undergraduate degree; and who have applied for admission to a library school or are already attending a library school accredited by the American Library Association. Preference will be given to applicants who plan to pursue a career in public library service.
