This scholarship, in the amount of $100, is intended to help Jefferson Scholars who have distinguished themselves academically to build their own libraries of books. It is awarded each year to 20 or more Jefferson Scholars on the basis of academic performance, with extra weight given to CTI classes and activities.

Applications are accepted each year in May and awards are distributed in early summer.
