This year the Conference of Inter-Mountain Archivists (CIMA) Council is offering two (2) $500 travel assistance scholarships to assist CIMA members who want to attend the 2017 Annual Conference on May 17-19 in Boise, Idaho. Depending on CIMA finances, we may offer a third scholarship. These scholarships are intended to encourage member participation by offsetting the expenses associated with travel, hotel, and per diem for those whose employers do not provide adequate travel support. Student and paraprofessional members are particularly encouraged to apply.
Members interested in applying for a CIMA travel assistance scholarship should draft a statement that provides the following information:
Name, Institution, Position Title, and a 250-word “Statement of Need” explaining (A) the reasons why you would like to attend the conference, and (B) the lack of funding and travel support from your institution that makes attendance difficult.
- All applicants must be dues-paying CIMA members in good standing. Questions concerning current membership status can be directed to Ryan Lee (Ryan_Lee@byu.edu).
- Scholarship applications should be submitted to Vice-President Jim Kichas (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, February 20 for full consideration by the scholarship committee.
- Please use the following subject line in your email: “CIMA Travel Scholarship”.
Successful applicants will be notified by Wednesday, March 1. Winning applicants must submit a 250-word synopsis to the CIMA newsletter describing their experience attending the conference.
Any additional questions should be directed to Jim Kichas (email@example.com)
