AAGEA SCHOLARSHIP

Are you currently working on your graduate degree in gifted education and administration? The Arkansas Association of Gifted Education Administrators is currently accepting scholarship applications for individuals pursing their graduate degree in gifted education and administration or related fields. Two scholarship awards will be presented during the AAEA Summer Conference in Little Rock, AR in August. 

AASBO ANITA MURPHREE SCHOLARSHIP

The first scholarship honoring the memory of Anita Murphree was given in February 2003. Because of Anita’s dedication and service to AASBO and SASBO, and her leadership in school business, the AASBO Board of Directors voted to pay the registration fee for an AASBO member to attend the Annual SASBO Conference. The SASBO Board of Directors implemented the same scholarship to be given away in each of the 13 states that make up the Southeastern Association. A drawing is held at the Annual AASBO Conference during the Business Meeting for the AASBO and SASBO scholarships.
