Archie Motley Scholarship

The Midwest Archives Conference is soliciting applications for the 2017 Archie Motley Memorial Scholarship for Minority Students. The scholarship is designed to provide financial assistance to minority students pursuing graduate education in archival administration and to encourage ethnic diversification of the MAC membership and of the archival profession as a whole. Two $750 scholarships, accompanied by one-year memberships to MAC, will be awarded.

Students wanted for Winter Seattle Area Archivists Meeting

Are you a student in the greater Seattle area in a graduate program with some emphasis in archives?  Maybe you are in library school, museum studies or in an archives and records management program and have just finished an internship.  Perhaps you are working on a thesis or research project.  Or you volunteer in your university’s Special Collections or Archives department.  Whatever your angle: we want you to share your experiences with us!

The focus of the Seattle Area Archivists’ winter meeting will be student presentations.  We will be hosting a meeting in early March and are hoping to put together a panel of 3-6 students.  Each student will have about 10 to 20 minutes to present on their topic of interest.  We offer in return a welcoming environment for you to practice your presentation skills and network with local archivists.

Interested yet?  Send a short description of your proposed topic as well as any A/V needs to by February 12th.
