Recipients of the Barbara West Larsen School of Social Work Founder’s Endowment shall be pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in social work at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Barbara Larsen, Associate Professor Emerita of Social Work, was co-founder of the School of Social Work at the University of Nevada, Reno and served for a number of years as the chairman of the School of Social Work. During the nearly 25 years that she taught, Barbara was a strong advocate for children and taught child law courses in addition to social work courses. Barbara was always student-centered and was honored as a Senior Scholar Mentor in 1990. Barbara remained grateful to the students she taught until she passed away in 2011. Barbara’s husband, Larry Larsen, would like to honor her by establishing a scholarship to benefit deserving students in the School of Social Work.
