SGA Scholarship Opportunities

The Society of Georgia Archivists has a vibrant and active scholarship program to enable students and archivists to attend the Georgia Archives Institute, conferences, and annual meetings sponsored by the Society of Georgia Archivists and the Society of American Archivists. These scholarships afford practitioners and students to attend such professional development opportunities that they may might not otherwise have the personal finances nor financial support from their institutions to attend.

An auction is held at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Georgia Archivists each year to benefit the scholarships; however, monetary donations are always welcomed.
