The Society of Georgia Archivists each year awards a scholarship for attendance at the Georgia Archives Institute held each summer in Atlanta. The purpose of the scholarship is to enhance archival education and membership. The scholarship is named for Carroll Hart, former director of the Georgia Department of Archives and History, founding member of the Society of Georgia Archivists, and founder of the Georgia Archives Institute.
The scholarship will cover an amount equal to the noncredit tuition for the Institute but not to exceed $500, and a year's membership in the Society of Georgia Archivists. Please note that individuals must also apply separately to the Georgia Archives Institute by April 1, 2015. After the Georgia Archives Institute, the recipient will submit a brief article on the experience for use in the SGA Newsletter.
Individuals eligible to compete 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. Preferences will be given to applicants who do not have access to institutional support for attending the Georgia Archives Institute. Individuals may apply or be nominated by a supervisor or instructor.
