Since 2005 Sameslöjdstiftelsen administers a scholarship in memory of Asa Kitok. Asa helped to spread knowledge about Sámi root craft a that was almost lost in the beginning of the 1900s.

Note: If you are currently enrolled in classes or programmes of crafts or arts you may not apply for the scholarship.
