The Jane Mayse Scholarship is offered to high school seniors who are valid Goshen Public Library cardholders (a resident with a card or a nonresident who has purchased a card – it is not available to reciprocal buyers).

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.

Essays will be judged on how well they are developed, the expressiveness in writing, the competency in writing (i.e. grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc.) and the thoroughness in following directions given in the paragraph above.  Please double space the essay and have someone proofread it!  Do not put your name on the essay page.

Goshen High School seniors may pick up an application at the GHS guidance office and return it there.  Application deadline at GHS is March 18, 2011.  Home schooled seniors or those attending other area high schools that are resident or non-resident library card holders may also obtain an application at the Goshen Public Library front desk and return it there.  The application deadline at GPL is April 1, 2011.

Jane Mayse was a Goshen educator who helped found the Goshen Adult Literacy Program as well as Friends of the Goshen Public Library.  She believed that education was the key to every door.  For more information about this scholarship, please contact Ann-Margaret Rice at the Goshen Public Library at (574) 533-9531 or via email at amrice@goshenpl.lib.in.us.
