Lesta Norris Burt Scholarship Fund
The Lesta Norris Burt Scholarship was established by the Chair of the Department of Library Science in honor of Lesta J. Burt who served as the director and professor of the Library Science Department at Sam Houston State University. The scholarship will provide financial assistance to students in their pursuit of becoming librarians. It is the Donor’s intent for the endowment to provide one or more annual scholarship awards to be announced in the spring and disbursed the following academic year, half in the fall and the remaining half in the spring semester. This scholarship was established to assist with education expenses.
