NHPRC Seeks Host Institution for 2004-2005 NHPRC Fellowship
in Archival Administration
The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) is now
accepting applications for the 2004-2005 year from archival repositories interested
in serving as host institutions for an NHPRC Fellow in Archival Administration.
State and local government agencies, colleges, universities, and other non-profit
organizations, and federally acknowledged or state-recognized Native American
tribes or groups are eligible to apply. The position will focus on active hands-on
experience in administration and management.

The commission views the fellowship as an opportunity for professional archivists
with at least one year of demonstrated experience to gain new or additional experience
with archival administrative procedures and problems. Archives interested in
applying to serve as host institutions should be able to expose the fellow to
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 host’s program. In addition, the project director should
be a mentor to the fellow and take an active role in the fellow’s development.
The fellow’s stipend is $40,000, with a benefit payment of $10,000. Host
institutions are awarded $1,500, to interview prospective applicants and to use
for the fellow’s professional travel during the fellowship year.
The host institution will be chosen by December 1, 2003. Applications for prospective
fellows will be made available at that time. Applications from potential fellows
are due by March 1, 2004.

to discuses their applications. The commission staff will work with applicants
to assure that their proposals include the range of administrative opportunities
desired by the commission.
