Starting in 2008, the Society of Georgia Archivists will each year award a scholarship to attend the SGA-sponsored Pre-Conference Workshop. The Pre-Conference Workshop is held in conjunction with the SGA Annual Meeting at various locations around the state of Georgia. Previous workshops have addressed a variety of themes and issues faced by archivists and archival institutions, including electronic records, exhibits, donor relations, digital collections, and funding. The purpose of the Pre-Conference Workshop and this scholarship is to enhance archival education. The scholarship was named by SGA members at the 2007 SGA Annual Meeting in honor of long-time member Tony Dees.
The registration fee for the awarded applicant will be waived by the Society of Georgia Archivists. Recipients will be responsible for any travel fees associated with attending the workshop. Please note that the scholarship winner is responsible for submitting their workshop registration form by the registration deadline. After the workshop, the recipient will submit a brief article on the experience for publication in the SGA Newsletter.
Individuals eligible to apply for the scholarship are those engaged in compensated or volunteer archival work at any level in an institution in the state of Georgia, SGA members employed outside the state of Georgia, graduate students preparing for a career in archives at a college or university in Georgia, or SGA student members studying outside the state of Georgia. Preference will be given to applicants who do not have access to institutional support for attending the SGA Pre-Conference Workshop. Individuals may apply or be nominated by a supervisor or instructor.
