[Just received the following announcement from the American Indian Library Association]

In 2012, the American Indian Library Association (AILA) will provide a library school scholarship to a qualified American Indian individual in the amount of $2000 for the 2012-2013 academic school year. The scholarship has been named to honor Virginia Mathews, one of the original founders of AILA.

The purpose of the Virginia Mathews Memorial Scholarship shall be to provide tuition to an American Indian individual who lives and works in the American Indian community, and who is enrolled, or has been accepted and will enroll, in a master's degree program at a university with a library and/or information sciences program accredited by the American Library Association.
