The Patrick Heath Public Library is now accepting applications for the Evelyn C. Hill Scholarship. Candidates should be planning to seek a Master’s Degree in Library or Information Science. At the time of funding of the scholarship candidates must have applied to and subsequently been accepted to an ALA accredited college or university located in the U.S. Each candidate must provide evidence of financial need, curriculum vitae, a statement of purpose, and the most recent college transcripts. Preference will be given to residents of Kendall and Gillespie Counties and all of Fair Oaks Ranch. In the event no candidates from these areas apply, then the committee will consider any Texas resident who is interested in becoming a professional librarian. The successful candidate is eligible to receive a maximum $1,500 for tuition and fees for the Fall 2017 Semester. Applications can be downloaded and can be mailed to or dropped off at the library. The deadline for submission is May 31.
