Rev. Brian J. O’Connell, CM. Library Studies Scholarship
The scholarship is named for the late Dean of St. John’s college of Liberal Arts and Science of which Library and Information Science is a Division. That the University might provide merit scholarships to students in Library and Information Science was made possible by a planning initiative of Fr. O’Connell’s.
This scholarship is available for matriculated students in the MS and Advanced Certificate programs. The scholarship is awarded for academic merit, based on GPA. Students at DLIS will receive scholarships based on the GPA of their most recent degree. The scholarship amounts for the 2015-16 academic year follow:
- If the GPA is 3.8 to 4.0, the student will receive a scholarship of $1,170 per 3 credit course.
- If the GPA is 3.6 to 3.79, the student will receive a scholarship of $1,130 per 3 credit course.
- If the GPA is 3.4 to 3.59, the student will receive a scholarship of $950 per 3 credit course.
