SWIM scholars now include 19 from South Dakota
The State Library would like to officially welcome three new mini-scholarship recipients to the SWIM program. Kelly Henkel (Sioux Falls), Lynn Klundt (Aberdeen), and Karen Gutzman (Brookings) have received small scholarships to help them finish their MLIS program in the UNT cohort. This brings the total number of scholarship recipients in South Dakota to 19. All of the SWIM scholars will be recognized at the upcoming SDLA conference in Spearfish and will be gathering on Thursday evening of the conference for a brief reception.
The SWIM program is a one-time scholarship program made possible through collaboration among the South Dakota State Library, the Idaho Commission for Libraries, Montana State Library and the Wyoming State Library with funding provided by a grant from the Laura Bush Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
