Announcing the 2019 Jackson Memorial SNCA Meeting Student Scholarship and Graduate Student Survey

The Education Committee is now accepting applications for C. David Jackson Memorial Student Scholarship for the annual SNCA conference at the University of North Carolina Wilmington! Pre-conference workshops will be held on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, and the conference will run Thursday and Friday, March 14-15, 2019.

This year, the committee will award two scholarships of $500 each to support student attendance at the society’s annual meeting and pre-conference workshops. Scholarship funds may be used for meeting registration, workshops, lodging, meals, travel, and other expenses. A one-year SNCA membership is also included with the scholarship.

Scholarship funds will be disbursed to recipients prior to the conference as a one-time payment. Applicants must be students enrolled in an archival studies, public history, or library science program in North Carolina.

Applications must be received by Monday, January 14, 2019. We will notify applicants of the committee’s decisions in early February. You can find the application form and additional details here.

Also: SNCA’s Education Committee would love graduate students’ feedback regarding the kinds of awards and rewards that are of interest to you. The survey will be open now until February 1. Two randomly selected survey participants will win a $25 gift card to an independent bookstore of their choice as a thank you. (Only one entry per person, please)

If you have questions about SNCA's Education Committee work or any of the above, please email committee chair Stephanie Bennett at education@ncarchivists.org.
