Student Assistant Scholarship Endowment for the Libraries

In response to a challenge gift from a Mason alumna who was a former University Libraries’ student employee, the Libraries launched a new initiative in 2017 – the Student Assistant Scholarship Endowment for the Libraries.

With the generosity of Mason alumni and friends, the Libraries created an endowment to recognize and support student assistants who have demonstrated outstanding work performance in the University Libraries while meeting the academic requirements of their coursework at Mason. The purpose of the endowment will be to award a scholarship each year to provide assistance for an undergraduate student employee's educational expenses at Mason.

We officially launched this initiative as part of Mason’s first annual Giving Day on Thursday, April 6, 2017, and hope to fully fund the endowment by the close of Mason’s second annual Giving Day on Thursday, April 5, 2018.
