The Lincoln Forum Franklin-Medford Scholarship

In 2021, a Lincoln Forum member generously created a scholarship to encourage diversity at the Forum’s annual symposium. Named in honor of the great historians John Hope Franklin and Edna Greene Medford, the scholarship is open to students of color who are full-time undergraduates or graduate students. One student enrolled at a college or university in the U.S. will be selected to attend the annual meeting of the Lincoln Forum, to be held in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, each November. The scholarship covers the cost of registration for the symposium, three nights lodging and group meals at the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg, and travel reimbursement for the student. All applications must be received on or before July 31.

 Applicants must submit the following materials:

 

  • A letter (2-3 pages) outlining the student’s interest in Abraham Lincoln and why he or she would like to attend the Lincoln Forum meeting
  • A letter of recommendation from an applicant’s professor

 Application materials should be sent via email to:
