ARL/SAA Mosaic Program Fellowship: Due April 1, 2014

The ARL/Society of American Archivists (SAA) Mosaic Program promotes much-needed diversification of the archives and special collections professional workforce by providing financial support, practical work experience, mentoring, career placement assistance, and leadership development to emerging professionals from traditionally underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups. An important objective of the program is to attract and retain individuals who demonstrate excellent potential for scholastic and personal achievement and who manifest a commitment both to the archives and special collections profession and to advancing diversity concerns within it. ARL/SAA will recruit 15 diverse students in archival science or special collections librarianship from August 2013 to May 2016.

Graduate scholarships will attract diverse students to master’s degree programs in archival science and LIS programs with specialization in special collections. The scholarship program will provide financial support of up to $10,000 per student, a level that will compete with graduate-level academic and professional programs in other disciplines. The program will include a paid internship in a partner ARL library or archive as well as financial support for student membership in SAA for one year.
