Scholarship for the National Institute on Genealogical Research

As a member of the National Institute on Genealogical Research Alumni Association (NIGRAA) I am excited to let you know about a scholarship available to attend the institute. I attended in 2008 and have loved working with federal records ever since. Beverly Rice, the current president of NIGRAA, has asked me to publicize this scholarship. Apply quickly if you are interested, as the deadline is January 15, 2014.

The National Institute on Genealogical Research Alumni Association (NIGRAA) announces the Richard S. Lackey Memorial Scholarship for 2014. This scholarship is awarded to an experienced researcher employed in a paid or volunteer position in the services of the genealogical community. The amount of the Scholarship is $500, which covers full tuition for the National Institute on Genealogical Research, attendance at the Alumni Association Dinner, and will partly defray hotel and/or meal costs.

Applications must be submitted in PDF or Word format. The completed application form and attachments should be e-mailed to Beverly Rice at and received by 15 January 2014. The application form can be found at the bottom of the NIGRAA website at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nigraa/

The winner will be notified no later than 15 February 2013. The scholarship winner will automatically be accepted for the National Institute on Genealogical Research (NIGR), to be held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., from Monday, July 14 through Friday, July 18, 2013. NIGR is an intensive program offering on-site examination of federal records and is intended for experienced genealogical researchers. Note: an application to attend in 2014 must also be submitted to NIGR.

Membership in NIGRAA is open to anyone who has completed one or more sessions of the National Institute on Genealogical Research or who has lectured at any session.
