In an effort to encourage student participation in the organization, the Society of Tennessee Archivists is pleased to announce the availability of two student scholarships to its annual meeting. The scholarships cover registration fees to attend annual meeting sessions, lodging expenses at the conference hotel (when travel from the student’s home to the conference exceeds
50 miles), and a complimentary ticket to the Society’s annual banquet. The scholarships also provide a stipend of $100 to help cover costs of gas and food expenses. Recipients of the STA Student Scholarships will be recognized with a certificate at the organization’s banquet.
The STA student scholarships are open to graduate and undergraduate students in archival and related programs, such as public history, history, museum studies, and library science in Tennessee colleges and universities. Process
To apply, students should submit the following materials by September 29 of each year:
- Completed Scholarship Application
- Cover letter explaining why attending the annual STA meeting will benefit the student’s
current and future career goals.
- One letter of recommendation from a current or former instructor.
The STA Executive Committee will review all completed applications and notify recipients by mail of their awards. The Committee will also notify individuals who applied for scholarships but were not chosen as award recipients. Interested students should submit a completed application packet by September 29, 2007, to:
