The American Indian Library Association announces the establishment of a scholarship award in honor of Virginia Mathews for American Indian/Alaskan Native students who are enrolled in, or have been accepted to and will enroll in a master’s degree program in an American Library Association accredited library school. The scholarship is designed to encourage the entry of qualified American Indians and Alaskan Natives into the library profession.

Through the generosity of DEMCO, in 2012 the American Indian Library Association is able to offer three travel grants in the amount of $500 each to the American Library Association Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA.
