June S. Stillman (June 27, 1929 – March 10, 1998)

In 1998 the June S. Stillman Memorial Endowed Scholarship for Libraries Student Assistants & USPS was established in memory of one of the first two reference librarians hired in 1968 when the University of Central Florida (then Florida Technological University) first opened to students.

This scholarship is quite unique in that the founders created the scholarship to further the educational goals of UCF Libraries student assistants and USPS employees only.  To see more about the scholarship and application.
