The scholarships are provided via FTRF's Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund
As part of its sponsorship of the course, FTRF will provide all enrolled students with a copy of the book True Stories of Censorship Battles in America's Libraries
, edited by Valerie Nye and Kathy Barco. FTRF is also participating via guest lectures by staff, trustees, and volunteers and providing material from its archives of Judith Krug's lectures and interviews. The course will be taught by Illinois GSLIS Professor Emily Knox.
The course is available to any LIS student and we are excited the course will include participants from multiple institutions. Registration in the course has been extended to Friday, August 15
for anyone interested. For more information, visit www.ftrf.org/?Krug_Education
Congratulations to the two recipients, and many thanks to everyone involved in the course and scholarship process!
