Larry Gulley Scholarship

The Society of Georgia Archivists each year awards a scholarship for attendance at the organization's annual meeting in the fall and for one year membership in SGA. The purpose of the scholarship is to enhance archival education, membership, and participation in the profession. The scholarship is named for Larry Gulley, a loyal member of the Society of Georgia Archivists who gave stellar service to the organization in many capacities.

The SGA Annual Meeting registration fee for the successful 2022 Gulley Scholarship applicant will be waived by the Society of Georgia Archivists. Additionally, the recipient of the scholarship will also receive an Annual Membership to SGA (or a 1 year renewal if a current member) and a $100 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.

Information about the SGA Annual Meeting can be found here.

After the SGA meeting, the recipient will submit a brief article on the experience for use in the SGA Newsletter.
