NHPRC Reissues call for 2002-2003 Fellowship in Archival Administration


The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) is reissuing its call for applications for the 2002-2003 academic year from archival professionals interested in applying for the NHPRC Fellowship in Archival Administration.

The Commission views the fellowship as an opportunity for professional archivists with two to five years experience to gain new or additional experience with archival administrative procedures and problems. The fellow will participate in a wide variety of archival administrative experiences, as well as formal management or supervisory training, during the nine to twelve months the fellow will be associated with the program.

The fellow's stipend is $35,000, with a benefit payment of $8,750. Host institutions are awarded $1,500, to interview prospective applicants and to use for the fellow's professional travel during the fellowship year. Applications should be received by July 31, 2002.

The host institution for the year 2002-2003 is the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives (AJA) in Cincinnati, Ohio. Located on the Cincinnati campus of Hebrew Union College, the AJA preserves nearly 8,000 linear feet of records relating to American Jewish history.
