Another awesome scholarship for minority students! Many of the scholarship deadlines posted here on blogMLIS are approaching in the next couple months so plan accordingly. Don’t miss out on these great funding opportunities!
The application period for the 2017 Harold T. Pinkett Minority Student Award is currently open, with a deadline of February 28, 2017.
The Pinkett Award was established in 1993 to recognize and acknowledge minority graduate students, such as those of African, Asian, Latino or Native American descent, who, through scholastic and personal achievement, manifest an interest in becoming professional archivists and active members of the Society of American Archivists. Sponsored by the Archivists and Archives of Color Section, the award is named in honor of archival pioneer Harold T. Pinkett, the first African American appointed archivist at the National Archives.
Up to two recipients of the award will receive full complimentary registration and related expenses for hotel and travel to attend the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, July 23–29, 2017. In addition, each recipient receives a complimentary one-year membership in SAA.
