Travel Grant to Attend Society of American Archivists 2012 Annual Meeting
The Delaware Valley Archivists Group is offering a $1000 travel grant to one member toward attendance
at the Society of American Archivists annual meeting, to be held in San Diego this August. We are
particularly interested in supporting first-time SAA attendance by non-student members, but all
eligible DVAG members are encouraged to apply.
Completed applications, including a copy of the applicant’s resume, should be directed to
firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to apply is 11:59pm on Sunday, June 24, 2012.
A winner will be announced no later than June 29, 2012, in time for the winner to take advantage of
early bird conference registration, which ends on July 6.
All non-student and student DVAG members may apply. Applicants must be DVAG members as of May
Funds can only be used to attend the Society of American Archivists (SAA) annual meeting in San Diego,
August 6-10, 2012. Funds may be used toward main meeting registration, hotel, transportation, or
meals. They may not be used for pre-conference programs, tours, or leisure activities.
Requirements for Winner
After the conference, the winner must prepare a report on their experience for publication in DVAG’s
newsletter, The Arranger.
Winner must submit expense receipts to DVAG’s Treasurer and will get reimbursed (rather than
receiving a check outright). Given the limited funds, we encourage the winner to take advantage of early
bird registration, which ends on July 6, 2012. Receipts must be received by September 30, 2012.
Reimbursement is limited to $1000. We recognize that $1000 will not pay all expenses for most
attendees, but hope that it will make conference attendance easier for the winner.
Deadline to apply is June 24, 2012. Recipient will be notified June 29, 2012.
