Carl and Margaret Husic Award
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, provides $1,200 to support graduate study in librarianship. The award, now in its fourth year, honors Husic’s parents, Margaret Husic and the late Carl John Husic Sr.
Preference for the Husic Award will be given to those whose primary interest is in foreign-language librarianship and area studies and who can demonstrate in an essay their intent to use their knowledge of less commonly taught languages in their library career.
