FP Young Scholarship
Frank P. Young (1879-1969) was an educator who served on the Appleton Library Board of Trustees 1921-1938. His wife, Clara Stansbury Young, served on the Library Board 1957-1972. The Frank P. Young Scholarship Fund was established at the Appleton Public Library in 1969 to help students obtain a graduate degree in Library Science and to further library service in the Appleton community.
The scholarship is awarded to students working toward an advanced degree in Library Science in a program accredited by the American Library Association at a university in Wisconsin or in one of the states contiguous to Wisconsin. In recognition of the long and close relationship of the Frank P. Young family with Appleton and Lawrence University, preference is given to residents of Appleton or the Fox Cities area or graduates of Lawrence University.
The scholarship is awarded on the basis of a letter/resume outlining the applicant’s educational background, work experience, and career objectives, a completed application, an official transcript from the Library School and two letters of reference.
