The application period for the Society of American Archivists’ (SAA) Mosaic
Scholarship is currently open, with a deadline of February 28, 2015.
The Mosaic Scholarship was established to provide financial and mentoring
support to minority students pursuing graduate education in archival
science, to encourage students to pursue careers in archives, and to
promote the diversification of the American archival profession. The award
is given to applicants who demonstrate excellent potential for scholastic
and personal achievement and who manifest a commitment both to the archival
profession and to advancing diversity concerns within it.
Up to two scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded. In addition, each
scholarship recipient receives a one-year complimentary membership to SAA
and complementary registration to the Society’s Annual Meeting.
