Scholarship and Mini-grant Applications for the Phyllis Corsetti Endowment Fund Now Available

The Phyllis Corsetti Endowment Fund is administered by the Terryville Public Library Board of Directors. The fund was established in October 2015 through the generosity of Phyllis Corsetti to create an additional resource for the children of the Town of Plymouth. Ms. Corsetti, an educator who loved her teaching career and her students, was a local resident who inspired and encouraged the best qualities in a child. The Endowment allows for several scholarships and mini-grants to be disbursed within the community each year.
