The Colorado Historical Records Advisory Board (CHRAB) is happy to announce this year’s funding opportunities from National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) for continuing education scholarships in archival studies. Three scholarships of $1,000 will be awarded to applicants interested in attending in or out of state courses given by the Society of American Archivists (SAA) or professional conferences such as SAA’s Annual meeting. Special consideration will be given towards applicants interested in courses on digital preservation and access. Funds will be available for courses or conferences attended from July 15, 2019 – June 1, 2020.
Awarded funds can be used for reimbursement of registration fees, hotels, travel, and other expenses. Individuals receiving funding will be required to write a blog post summarizing their experience and how they intend to apply their new knowledge. The blog post will be posted on the Colorado State Archives website to be shared with the archival community in the state.
Archivists, students, and information professionals in Colorado with an interest in improving their professional development in archives are encouraged to apply. Applications are open from April 22, 2019 to June 29, 2019.
