The University of Kansas Libraries
Librarian funds graduate study award
The University of Kansas Libraries is once again offering the Carl and Margaret Husic Award to Support Librarianship in Less Commonly Taught Languages.
Funded by KU’s Slavic and Special Languages Librarian Geoff Husic, the $1,200 award will support graduate study in librarianship. The award honors Husic’s parents, Margaret Husic and the late Carl John Husic Sr.
The award recipient will be announced in May. The award is intended for current KU students or recent graduates who have been accepted to a graduate program in librarianship. Preference will be given to those whose primary interest is in foreign-language librarianship and area studies and who can demonstrate in their essay their intent to use their knowledge of less commonly taught languages in their library career.
The application deadline is April 1. To learn more about the award and apply, please go to the Husic Award home page.
