Northwest Archivists conference. In support of this effort, the NACR has two $500 scholarships available to promote the professional development of tribal members engaged in the archival profession and/or non-tribal members working for a tribal archive in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho or Montana. The NWA conference will be held April 25-27 in Warm Springs, Oregon. Past scholarship winners are welcome to apply, but priority will be given to new applicants.
Applicants must be tribal members engaged in the archival profession or enrolled in an archival studies program or MLIS program and/or non-tribal members working for a tribal archive in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho or Montana, who wish to attend the annual NWA conference in 2018. The scholarship will be awarded at the conference and recipients must attend the conference. All awardees will be expected to write a short report, due June 30, 2018, about their conference experiences to be published on the NWA-NACR blog and NWA’s newsletter, Easy Access. Last year’s scholarship awardees were Shannon Kravitz, Kurtis Bullchild, and Josiah Pinkham.
Current members of the NWA NACR Scholarships Committee will review applications and select three recipients. Applicants will be evaluated based on the case made in addressing the required questions in their application. Considerations will be made to provide geographic representation in the awards. The application deadline is Friday, March 2, 2018, and all applicants will be notified by March 12, 2018.
