Shields Scholarship Fund
ASPS has set up this fund with the Arkansas Community Foundation so future donations made can be tax deductible. Per foundation rules, we have until end of 2021 to get the fund to $10,000 before we can resume awarding scholarships to surveying students. The fund is currently just over $5,000.
