Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) Scholarship Opportunities

I received this information today from the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG):


SLIG Scholarship Opportunities

Planning to attend the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG) in January 2018? There are several scholarship opportunities available for SLIG students.

SLIG Jimmy B. Parker Scholarship
*Deadline June 20, 2017*

Named in honor of Jimmy B. Parker, whose legacy of service to the genealogical community covered more than 50 years, this full-tuition scholarship will be awarded to an individual who has "demonstrated commitment to genealogical excellence and community involvement". The winner will be announced July 1st and their course of choice pre-reserved.  Full details here:

SLIG Scholarship for First-Time Institute Attendees
*Deadline June 20, 2017*

This fund, opened at SLIG 2016, was created to enhance scholarship opportunities for SLIG students. Donations have been made by Maia's Bookstore and SLIG students. More details and submission requirements may be found here:

ASG Scholar Award, American Society of Genealogists

This award provides "financial assistance for a developing scholar to attend one of five academic programs in American genealogy." The award, which will be given in October, will apply toward a SLIG 2018 course of study. To find out more, visit their website:

AncestryProGenealogists Scholarship
*Deadline TBD for SLIG 2019*

Established to "foster and support professional genealogists in their ongoing development efforts". Scholarship covers tuition and specific other expenses to attend one of the four US-based genealogical institutes.

Unfortunately, due to a lot of complicating factors, applicants won't be aware of the courses to be offered for SLIG 2019 until after they have completed their application. For that reason, we offer the opportunity to have open dialogue with the director: if needed to help you rank SLIG in order of attendance preference on your application.

You can learn more about the AncestryProGenealogists Scholarship on their website
