Dear Pi Lambda Sigma Members,
Our honorary’s mission has been for many years to financially support deserving academically-gifted students at the iSchool. We do this in two ways: through annual scholarships from the Marta and Joseph Dosa Scholarship Fund and through interest-free loans from the Florence Van Hoesen Loan Fund. These awards are made through the interest each fund generates from the principle, and our investments are managed as part of SU’s general investment portfolios.
Currently, interest funds available for awarding Dosa Scholarships are too low to make the award. So we are appealing ( bribing……….???) members this year to donate especially to the Dosa Fund, so that we can resume annual scholarships.
Our “bribe” is a nice one. We are including in this year’s duesmailing our new Pi Lambda Sigma / Beta Phi Mu vinyl cling, suitable for car or office window, and easily transferable to your new car or new office window!
Our financial help is only awarded to students who have successfully completed at least half of their MSLIS program. Won’t you please help us help them with a generous donation to the Dosa Scholarship Fund, along with your dues payment, today? And THANK YOU!
Your Executive Board
Linda Galloway, Abby Kasowitz-Scheer, Suzanne Preate, Susan Slenker, Gary Maggi, Valarie Massulik, Christine Demetros, Ellen Owens, Carole Kupelian, Jennifer Husenitza, Anne Rauh, Brian Dobreski, and Dr. Megan Oakleaf.
