Health Science Librarians of Illinois Helen Knoll Jira Scholarship

HSLI has received a very generous gift from the estate of Helen Knoll Jira. This gift will be placed into an endowment fund, with the proceeds used to support graduate education in library science or a closely related field of benefit to the profession of librarianship.

An ad-hoc committee is forming to set up initial management of the fund and develop policies and procedures. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Stacey Knight-Davis at slknight@eiu.edu. If you have investment experience or have helped manage an endowment for another organization, please consider joining the committee.

Donations are being accepted to the fund, so if you would like to contribute, please mark the check for “Jira Scholarship Fund.”
