Scholarship + Genealogical Education = Wonderful Opportunity


The 2016 American Society of Genealogists (ASG) Scholar Award is open to those interested in applying.

Established in 1996, the ASG Scholar Award is an annual scholarship now providing an increased stipend of $1,000 toward tuition and expenses at one of three major academic genealogical programs in the United States. Candidacy for the award is open to all genealogists, genealogical librarians, and researchers working in related fields. Applicants submit a published work or a manuscript of work in progress, to be judged by a panel of three Fellows. The goal of the award is to recognize talent and build genealogical expertise by providing promising genealogists the opportunity to receive advanced academic training in genealogy.

The ASG Scholar Award provides financial assistance for a developing scholar to attend one of five academic programs in American genealogy: the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) at Samford University (Birmingham, Ala.), the National Institute on Genealogical Research (NIGR) in Washington, D.C., the Certificate Program in Genealogical Research at Boston University, the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), or the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP). The recipient may register for the program of his or her choice.

You can read the full details on Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter. The deadline for applying is 31 August 2015.
