The Mabel Wagnalls Jones Scholarship

Mabel Wagnalls Jones established as one aspect of her bequest to The Wagnalls Memorial Foundation a fund to provide scholarships for persons residing in Lithopolis Bloom Township with preference to Lithopolis. The scholarships are to be used for attending institutions of learning, music and art. Scholarships were awarded beginning in 1948, and over 3,200 students have been assisted in attending colleges across the United States.

The purpose of the scholarship fund is to encourage and assist students of Bloom Township in obtaining a degree in higher education. The primary responsibility for meeting the cost of a college education lies with the student and his or her family. It is recognized that the benefits the Fund provides are not intended to meet the total financial obligation of a student attending a college or university.
