ARSA Daniel Castleberry Memorial Scholarship


The Arkansas State Assembly of Surgical Technologists is offering a scholarship to students that are currently enrolled in an Arkansas accredited program in good academic standing and are an Arkansas student member of AST. It is our desire to support students who aspire to starting a career in our field of health services.

Applicants must provide all information requested on the application including personal information, an essay, and verification by a faculty member to be considered for a scholarship. The essay is limited to a maximum of 500 words. Applications submitted without student acknowledgment of agreement (e-signature) will be considered incomplete and consequently ineligible.

The number of recipients and amount of award may vary yearly depending on funds available. Recipients will be recognized at the ARSA workshop, website, and Facebook.

Note: The Arkansas State Assembly (ARSA) offered two Daniel Castleberry Memorial Student Scholarships in Spring, 2020. Once it was safe to travel (due to COVID-19), ARSA President Cindy Lewis presented the scholarships remotely. Congratulations to Tabitha Conner of Southeast Arkansas College in Pine Bluff and J'Quan Brammer at Baptist Health College in Little Rock. Instructors, ARSA plans to award a Spring, 2021 scholarship, so keep watching for details on how your students can apply.
