The Donna Hoke Scholarship was established by the New York Black Librarians’ Caucus Inc. to encourage students of African descent to enter the field of librarianship. The fund was named in honor of a young librarian who was an active member of the New York Black Librarians’ Caucus Inc. and other professional and civic organizations. Donna Hoke was deeply concerned about the issues confronting minority communities and was committed to bringing about positive change.
Ms. Hoke began as a page in the Queens Borough Public Library, and went on to receive her Master’s degree in Library Science from the University of Illinois. Because of her interest in children, she became a specialist in children’s services. At the early age of thirty, Donna Hoke succumbed to Hodgkin’s disease.
The scholarship will recognize a student of African American or African descent, currently enrolled in an ALA-accredited MLS program; and who has shown both an acquired proficiency in, and a strong commitment to the field of librarianship. Documentation in the form of an official transcript(s) and letters of recommendation will be requested.
