The Indiana Genealogical Society is now accepting applications for its Library Staff Educational Scholarship, for employees of Indiana libraries. The scholarship is intended to increase the staff's genealogical knowledge, thus enabling them to better serve their patrons.
The scholarship includes:
--a $500 credit to help pay the costs for the library employee to attend any conference, seminar or class that is related to genealogy.
--a complimentary registration to the IGS annual conference.
--a complimentary 1 year membership in IGS.
--a $100 gift certificate for the sponsoring library, to be used towards the purchase of any IGS publications.
Library staff that are new to the field of genealogy are encouraged to apply. Applications will be reviewed by a three person committee appointed by the IGS president. Applications must be postmarked by 31 December.
