The Association for Rural and Small Libraries offers three annual conference scholarships to promote the organization and the conference. The Dr. Bernard Vavrek Scholarship goes to a current LIS student and the Founders and Ken Davenport Scholarships go to current library professionals.
Thank you to our ARSL Premier Members who have helped make these scholarships possible through a $10 contribution as part of their membership and a special thanks to the ARSL Scholarship Committee for their work in selecting scholarship recipients.
