Messiah College History Majors Win Undergraduate Research Grants

Friends of Murray Library is pleased to announce the recipients of the 8th Annual Library Research Grant Awards. The grants are awarded to Messiah students whose research projects require resources at off-campus libraries and whose proposals are selected for funding by a panel of judges.

Congratulate these students on their achievement as you have opportunity! Their completed projects will be catalogued and archived in Murray Library.   The panel of judges included: Jonathan Lauer, library director and chair; Catherine Lawrence, co-owner of The Midtown Scholar Bookstore; Gary Page, associate professor of accounting.   Sincere thanks to the judges for their service, and to faculty members who encouraged students to apply.
