ASG Scholar Award, American Society of Genealogists

This award provides "financial assistance for a developing scholar to attend one of five academic programs in American genealogy." The award, which will be given in October, will apply toward a SLIG 2018 course of study. To find out more, visit their website.

AncestryProGenealogists Scholarship

Deadline December 31, 2017 for SLIG 2019

Established to "foster and support professional genealogists in their ongoing development efforts". Scholarship covers tuition and specific other expenses to attend one of the four US-based genealogical institutes.

Unfortunately, due to a lot of complicating factors, applicants won't be aware of the courses to be offered for SLIG 2019 until after they have completed their application. For that reason, we offer the opportunity to have open dialogue with the director if needed to help you rank SLIG in order of attendance preference on your application.

You can learn more about the AncestryProGenealogists Scholarship on their website.
