SAA Mosaic Scholarship

The application period for the Society of American Archivists’ (SAA) Mosaic Scholarship is currently open, with a deadline of February 28, 2019.
 
The Mosaic Scholarship was established to provide financial and mentoring support to minority students pursuing graduate education in archival science, to encourage students to pursue careers in archives, and to promote the diversification of the American archival profession. The award is given to applicants who demonstrate excellent potential for scholastic and personal achievement and who manifest a commitment both to the archival profession and to advancing diversity concerns within it.
 
Up to two scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded, contingent on available funds. In addition, each scholarship recipient receives a one-year complimentary membership to SAA and complimentary registration to the Society’s Annual Meeting for the year in which the scholarship was received.

Good Luck!

SAA Scholarships

Society of American Archivists (SAA) Scholarship portals are now open. This is a great thing to work on over winter break, as they require personal essays and evidence of scholarly work, and you can line up your letters of recommendation now.
UCLA swept the awards last year (yay!) and it would be great to have continued support for our classmates. I can’t encourage you enough to apply.
The awards, their stipulations, and past awardees are listed here. Please reach out if you have any questions!
