I feel compelled to share this one with you, even though it’s relatively niche for ArLiSNAP’s readership: Canadian full-time students with something to say about archival challenges and opportunities are welcome to apply. I was on this panel last year in Victoria and it was a brilliant experience with two talented students, and the Foundation grant was very generous. The deadline for 2015 applications is January 12th, and you can find the call here:
Proposals are now being accepted for the annual student session. All full-time students who are
presently enrolled in, or will graduate from, a Canadian Masters program in archival studies in
the 2014-2015 academic year are eligible to apply. The Program Team will select three papers
(15 to 20 minutes in length), each by a student from a different institution.
Thanks to the Association of Canadian Archivists Foundation (ACAF), those selected participants
who do not have full-time employment will receive a bursary (administered through their
school), which covers the cost of the registration fees as well as some assistance for their travel
and accommodation expenses.
