Now in their eleventh year, the Small Museums Affinity Group’s annual scholarships help colleagues from small museums across the country join us at our Annual Meeting for four days of educational sessions, hands-on workshops, and networking. Funded through generous donations from AASLH members, this scholarship provides a great opportunity for members from small institutions  to gain a bigger perspective through a national conference.

This year the committee awarded a record-breaking eleven scholarships to applicants from ten states. Congratulations to this year’s winners!
