Announcing the George Blood, L.P. Women in Audiovisual Archiving and Technology Scholarship

  17.03.20 4:58pm

AMIA is proud to announce a new 2017 scholarship!

The George Blood, L.P. Women in Audiovisual Archiving and Technology Scholarship is designed to facilitate the advanced education and training of women who wish to pursue careers in technical areas of audiovisual archives.

The scholarship is a result of the 2016 "Women in Tech" panel at the annual conference.  George Blood asked panel organizers "How can we get past the talk - what can I DO?"  This scholarship is a result of that discussion. 

The $4,000 scholarship is flexible in its structure, with a minimum of $3,000 applied to tuition, but the option to apply $1,000 towards travel to the annual conference.  The scholarship is open to students who have an interest or experience in technical areas of the field, identify as women, and are enrolled in graduate-level or advanced programs (or accepted into such a program for the next academic year). 

More information on the scholarship and application information is here

The Scholarship is dedicated to George's four sisters, four daughters, his wife, and to the many women who have worked at George Blood LP, in appreciation of their expertise and commitment to preserving our audiovisual heritage.
