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.

Individuals and host organizations must apply in tandem. To help facilitate the process of matching individuals with organizations, SRMA offers this spreadsheet2024 SRMA Fellowship Spreadsheet for Interested Hosts/Individualswhere interested individuals and organizations can share information and find partners. Please note that individuals and institutions must take the initiative to contact one another; SRMA will not monitor the spreadsheet nor reach out to organizations and individuals. Host institutions must be in Colorado or Wyoming, but remote projects for fellows outside of Colorado or Wyoming are permitted.
