    The Carolyn D. McGolerick Scholarship Application

    McDaniel College has partnered with The Community Foundation of Frederick County to award graduate scholarships in school librarianship. The Carolyn D. McGolerick Scholarship Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation, was established by the late Carolyn D. McGolerick, a McDaniel alumna who served as a librarian at Fort Detrick and at St. John’s School in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

    The application deadline is March 15. Award decisions will be made by June 1. All scholarships are awarded and must be used for the following academic year (fall, spring, summer).

    Currently enrolled students, newly admitted students, and those considering joining the Master of Science in School Librarianship program are eligible to apply. However, students must be fully admitted to the MS in School Librarianship program by March 15 to be considered for the scholarship. While some preference is given to Frederick County residents, graduates of Frederick County high schools, or current employees of Frederick County schools, the McGolerick Scholarship welcomes applicants from all geographic areas. Previous scholarship recipients may reapply each spring for additional funding for subsequent years.
