2020 SAA Scholarships
We have funding available for up to six scholarships to attend this year’s SAA virtual conference!
Note that the SRMA Scholarship for SAA application is due Tuesday, July 28th at 11:59 p.m. The scholarship covers the core registration fees (no additional workshops beyond what’s covered in the core registration) for the now all virtual 2020 Society of American Archivists Conference [https://www2.archivists.org/am2020/attend/Conference-Registration].
Recipient(s) will be notified by Friday, July 31st.
Recipients can work directly with the Treasurer (Patty Rettig) to pay for registration directly online, so if you act quickly, you should ideally have enough time to register before August 4th. Acknowledging the tight turnaround time and the possibility of unforeseen circumstances, we will pay for the late registration fee if you are not able to register before August 4th.
Who is eligible?
All SRMA members in good standing are eligible to apply (this includes people employed by member institutions). Members will not be eligible to receive more than one scholarship per 24 months from the conference date. Board members and members of the Selection Committee are not eligible.

Applicants submit a brief application that includes a statement of need, and expected benefits. Please send your application statement to Heather Bowden at firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59pm Tuesday, July 28th.
