AncestryProGenealogists Scholarship Announced

Application Deadline December 31, 2017

Ancestry recently announced that it is now accepting applications for the AncestryProGenealogists Scholarships to genealogical institutes, established to "foster and support professional genealogists in their ongoing development efforts." 
"The AncestryProGenealogists Scholarship Program will provide four scholarships that will cover tuition, round-trip standard economy airfare (Ancestry may substitute appropriate ground transportation for awardees who live within 300 miles of the applicable institute), and hotel expenses for one individual each to attend one of the four institutes listed below.  The scholarships will be awarded to qualified applicants who demonstrate a commitment to genealogy as a profession, a desire for professional development, and the ability to communicate that commitment in writing." 

The five genealogical institutes and their dates are as follows:

Genealogical Institute on Federal Records (Gen-Fed)

The deadline for submission is 11:59 Pacific Time on 31 December 2017, if submitted electronically; if mailed, it must be postmarked by 31 December 2017 and received by 5 January 2018.
