The first year the scholarships were offered Theimer raised $5,504 to assist 18 students and 8 SAA members at the full registration rate- the program continued in 2012 and 2013 resulting in a total of more than $20,000 in donations and almost one hundred archivists assisted over the first three years. Theimer recently launched a campaign to raise funds for the 2014 scholarships.
