Lisabeth Millard Scholarship
The Friends of the Library of West St. Tammany – “Lisabeth Millard Scholarship" is a $2,000 scholarship awarded to a graduating high school senior who will be attending an accredited four (4) year college or university starting in the 2021-2022 school year.
The scholarship will be paid in the amount of $500.00 per academic year in installments of $250.00 for the spring and fall semesters. The total amount over a four (4) year academic program is $2,000.00.
The student must reside in St. Tammany Parish to be eligible to receive the scholarship.
The completed application form and essay must be postmarked on or before April 1, 2022.
Our membership program has been on hold ever since we lost our lease at Haddon Hall and with the onset of COVID. We will be discussing the program and sharing our decisions next year. Volunteers are always welcome. If you'd like to volunteer please contact Alice at (479) 244-0503.
