SRMA Fellowship

March 08, 2024 10:34 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Society of Rocky Mountain Archivists is offering a stipend of up to $6,000 for early professionals to participate in our Archives Fellowship Pilot Program. The purpose of this program is to support a more diverse field of applicants who wish to, or are curious about, embarking on a career in the archival field. Acknowledging that the archival field has high barriers to entry, including requiring an ability to complete substantial (and often unpaid) fieldwork and internships, this program is intended to allow early career professionals from underrepresented and marginalized communities to gain experience while also being paid appropriately for their work. In particular, the selection committee encourages Black, Indigenous and/or people of color (BIPOC) to apply.

This is a unique experience for a new professional to develop a project based on their goals and skills and work directly with an organization to determine the project’s scope, goals, and outcomes. Institutions in SRMA member states (CO and WY) will partner with a fellow to identify a project needing the fellow’s expertise and labor. The fellowship project may last up to sixteen non-continuous weeks, but must be completed within one year of selection. Work may be done onsite, remotely, or a combination of both, depending on the fellow’s availability, the project, and the needs of the partner institution. Hours worked should scale appropriately with the length and available stipend (e.g., part-time for 16 weeks), so as to guarantee a livable wage for the fellow. 

Dates: Application Open: February 1 - May 1, 2024

Notification: May 19

Project work: May 19,2024 - December 21, 2024 (within 16 weeks)
