SAA seeks nominations for the Harold T. Pinkett Minority Student Award

December 9, 2008 on 2:05 pm | In Scholarships, Events |

Deadline: Saturday, February 28, 2009

Established in 1993, the Harold T. Pinkett Minority Student Award recognizes
minority undergraduate and graduate students, such as those of African,
Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic, or Native American descent, who, through
scholastic and personal achievement, manifest an interest in becoming
 professional archivists and active members of SAA. The Pinkett award was
 developed to encourage exceptional minority students to consider careers in
 the archival profession and, in turn, increase minority participation in SAA
 by exposing minority students to the experience of attending national
 meetings and encouraging them to join the organization.

 To be eligible, minority students, with preference given to full-time
 students, must possess a minimum scholastic grade point average of 3.5 while
 enrolled in a graduate program focusing on archival management during the
 academic year preceding the date the award is given. Full complimentary
registration to the SAA Annual Meeting and related expenses for hotel and
 travel for attending the SAA Annual Meeting.  Next year’s SAA Annual
 Meeting, themed Sustainable Archives, will take place at the Austin Hilton
 from August 11-16, 2009.  The Award is jointly funded by the SAA Archivists
 and Archives of Color Roundtable and is presented in late summer during
 SAA’s annual meeting.
