The Marilyn McNitt Memorial Scholarship funds a student to attend the Michigan Archival Association Annual Meeting. Marilyn was an archivist at the University of Michigan’s Bentley Historical Library for twenty-five years. Her commitment to researchers and students was an inspiration to fellow MAA members, and she left an indelible mark on the organization.
The scholarship covers lodging for two nights and conference registration. The recipient will also receive a $250 stipend for travel costs and a one-year membership to MAA. Finally, the scholarship winner will be asked to write an article for the MAA newsletter, Open Entry, about their conference experience.
The scholarship is open to graduate students in an archival science program or related field. To apply, please submit a completed application form and essay to Sarah Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for the 2017 Annual Meeting is April 1, 2017.
