Carrie Woodburn Johnson Endowment Grants

The Carrie Woodburn Johnson Endowment was established by the late Mrs. Johnson Tweedy in 1987-88 with the sum of $250,000. Dr. Les Cochran, The Provost, began to place $100,000 aside each year to build the endowment, with the goal of reaching one million dollars. Provosts Charles Kupchella and Jane Stephens finished the project in 2009. Since then the endowment has been used to award individual grants to faculty and staff at Southeast Missouri State University.

The Carrie Woodburn Johnson Endowment Grant program is facilitated through the Acquisitions Unit. The Johnson Endowment Grant program awards grants to student groups, faculty, and staff at Southeast Missouri State University for the purpose of purchasing materials to enhance Kent Library's collection. Requested materials can be electronic, print, or physical materials. They must be able to be acquired through a one-time purchase as materials with recurring costs cannot be purchased with the grants.
