Patricia Lindell Scholarship 2011-12
Every other year, the Folke Bernadotte Memorial Library awards a junior or senior student the Patricia Lindell Scholarship, established through the generosity of the Gustavus Library Associates. The recipient will be awarded $1,200 to undertake a research project for the library that benefits the wider Gustavus community.  Most recipients have also made this project the focus of a credit-bearing independent study project.
This year’s project, in celebration of the upcoming 40th anniversary of the current library building, will be to create visual displays (both physical and electronic), to write a textual history of the Gustavus Library, and to write a biographical essay of the library’s namesake, Folke Bernadotte.  The recipient of the scholarship, working during the spring 2012 term with Professors Jeff Jenson and Dan Mollner, will use archival and secondary sources.  The final project will be displayed in the library, posted on the Library Webpage, and included in the College Archives.  The successful candidate must be able to work independently and with initiative, possess strong oral and written communication skills, and have a keen sense of visual presentation.
To apply:
1.      Submit an application using the form found below.
2.      Attach a letter of recommendation from a faculty member who can speak to your credentials for this project.
3.      Return to the library administration office by NOVEMBER 22, 2011.
