The Ginny Frankenthaler Memorial Scholarship


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 $1,000 scholarship is awarded every two years. The recipient of the scholarship will be notified in July, with funding to begin with the fall school term. This scholarship is awarded every even year. Applications are due by the deadline of June 1st, even years only. Selection will be based on the application and supporting documents. Factors that will be considered in making the award include academic excellence, potential for leadership, commitment to library service, and financial need. Other considerations being equal, residents of Liberty County, Georgia, or Southeastern Georgia will be given preference. Mrs. Frankenthaler was a native of Liberty County, Georgia. *Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia
