Applications are now being accepted for the ASG Scholar Award for 2014. This is an annual grant of $500 awarded for study at one of three major academic genealogical programs in the United States—the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) at Samford University (Birmingham, Ala.), the National Institute on Genealogical Research (NIGR) in Washington, D.C., or the Certificate Program in Genealogical Research at Boston University.
The award is open to all genealogists; application includes a résumé, a sample of work (a genealogy manuscript of 5000 words or less), and a brief statement of intent. Applications close on September 30, 2013, for the grant to be used next year (2014). Read more about the award and how to apply at Awards > ASG Scholar Award.
