Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the Society of American Archivists’ J. Franklin Jameson Archival Advocacy Award.
The deadline for the 2018 Society of American Archivists’ J. Franklin Jameson Archival Advocacy Award is coming up on February 28, 2018.
Established in 1989, this award honors an individual, institution, or organization that promotes greater public awareness, appreciation, or support of archival activities or programs. The individual’s or institution’s contributions may take the form of advocacy, publicity, legislation, financial support, or a similar action that fosters archival work or raises public consciousness of the importance of archival work. Contributions should have broad, long-term impact at the regional level or beyond. Up to three awards may be given each year.
Please consider nominating (or self-nominating) an individual, institution, or organization that promotes greater public awareness, appreciation, or support of archival activities or programs.
Nominees must be from outside the archives profession. Individuals directly involved in archival work, either as paid or volunteer staff, or institutions or organizations directly responsible for an archival program are not eligible for this award.
Nominations should be sent through the online submission system by February 28, 2018 at https://app.smarterselect.com/programs/45853-Society-Of-American-Archivists.
