Jane Mayse Scholarship
Jane Mayse was a Goshen educator who helped found the Goshen Adult Literacy Program as well as the Friends of the Goshen Public Library. She believed that education was the key to every door.
The $1,000 scholarship is available to high school seniors who are valid Goshen Public Library resident and non-resident card holders. Students must submit an application and complete an essay using the following topic:
“In order to achieve success in life, it will be necessary for you to make a commitment to lifelong learning. In an essay of 200-300 words, discuss your plans for your undergraduate education, explaining how these plans relate to your personal views and to your commitment to lifelong learning.”
Please do not put your name on the essay page. Essays will be judged on how well the essays are developed, the expressiveness in writing, the competency in writing (i.e. grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.) and the thoroughness in following the directions set forth in the paragraph above.
Please double space the essay and have someone proofread it before you submit it!
Goshen High School seniors may pick up the application form at the GHS guidance office and return it there. All other applicants may obtain an application at the GPL Front Desk and return it there.
Applications are due by April 1, 2010.
