Applications for the Shirley Spragge Bursary for the AAO 2021 Conference are now being accepted

04 Mar 2021 3:51 PM | Anonymous

The 2021 AAO annual conference, with the theme "Doing The Work: From Colonial Pasts to Inclusive Futures" will be held virtually from May 11-14, 2021.

Up to $1300 in funding for free registrations is available through the Shirley Spragge Bursary for students, new professionals, and archivists in financial need.

To qualify for the bursary you must be an Ontario resident, and be either:

  • A student enrolled in a recognized archival program (must submit proof of enrollment), or
  • A recent (1-3 years) graduate of a recognized archival program (must submit proof of program completion), or
  • A practicing or volunteer archivist in financial need (must submit proof of employment or volunteering).

In order to make the conference as accessible and as inclusive as possible, it is no longer a requirement that applicants be AAO members and applications from individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or a Person of Colour will be prioritized. This year, multiple bursaries will be awarded.

Interested applicants are required to fill in the bursary application available on the AAO website and demonstrate financial need, an interest in archives education and/or professional development, and confirmed intent to participate in the annual AAO conference.

For more information and to submit your application, visit the Shirley Spragge Bursary page on the AAO website.

Applications are due on April 9th.
