The late Elizabeth Boatwright, a noted author and supporter of literary and historical endeavors, donated funds to the South Caroliniana Library for the establishment of an assistantship for graduate history students, the Elizabeth Boatwright Coker Graduate Assistantship. As a result of Ms. Coker's generosity, worthy students are encouraged and enabled to advance their professional research skills.
The Assistantship is shared with the University of South Carolina's Department of History. Each academic year, one student in the Applied History Program is selected as the recipient of theCoker Assistantship. Recipients gain valuable work experience and training through their work with the collections of the South Caroliniana Library.
For information on applying for the Coker Assistantship, please contact the Director of theSouth Caroliniana Library at 803-777-3131.
