Archie Motley Memorial Scholarship

I would like to remind all history and library science department heads about the Archie Motley Memorial Scholarship for Minority Students. The Midwest Archives Conference (MAC) awards two $750 scholarships each spring to students enrolled in a graduate archival program. A complimentary annual membership to MAC is also included. Applicants must be of African, American Indian, Asian or Pacific Islander, or Latino descent. Complete information, including the application form and deadline, may be found on the MAC website:

Please forward this information to interested students, as it is a great opportunity to help them in their archival endeavors. The deadline for application entry is March 1, 2010.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
