Anthony R. Dees Educational Workshop Scholarship

Since 2008 the Society of Georgia Archivists has each year awarded a scholarship to attend an SGA-sponsored Pre-Conference Workshop. The Pre-Conference Workshop is held in conjunction with the SGA Annual Meeting at various locations around the state of Georgia. Previous workshops have addressed a variety of themes and issues faced by archivists and archival institutions, including electronic records, exhibits, donor relations, digital collections, and funding. The purpose of the Pre-Conference Workshop and this scholarship is to enhance archival education. The scholarship was named by SGA members at the 2007 SGA Annual Meeting in honor of long-time member Tony Dees.

A Pre-Conference Workshop registration fee for the successful scholarship applicant of the 2024 Dees Scholarship will be waived by the Society of Georgia Archivists. Additionally, the recipient of the scholarship will also receive a $75 credit to apply to a Society of American Archivists (SAA) class or a purchase in the SAA bookstore. Award recipients will also receive an award certificate.

Description of the 2024 Annual Meeting Workshops can be found here.
