American Society of Genealogists Scholar Award

American Society of Genealogists Scholar Award

American Society of Genealogists Scholar Award (applications due before 31 August)—open to all genealogists, genealogical librarians, and researchers working in related fields. 

Established in 1996, the American Society of Genealogists (ASG) Scholar Award is an annual scholarship of $2,000 toward tuition and expenses at one of six major academic genealogical programs in the United States, which includes the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research.

Candidacy for the award is open to all genealogists, genealogical librarians, and researchers working in related fields. Applicants submit a published work or a manuscript of work in progress, to be judged by a panel of three Fellows. The goal of the award is to recognize talent and build genealogical expertise by providing promising genealogists the opportunity to receive advanced academic training in genealogy. The award, granted at the ASG annual meeting each fall, is to defray costs of attending a program of the recipients choice in the following calendar year.

Applicants for the award for 2021 should apply before August 31, 2020. Announcement of the award winner for 2021 will be made by November 15, 2020. Visit the American Society of Genealogists website for details.
