One of the main goals for the NWA Native American Collections Roundtable (NACR) is to actively reach out and invite Native American tribes and organizations to participate in the Northwest Archivists conference, which will be a joint conference (Western Archivists Meeting). In support of this effort, the NACR offers three $500 scholarships available to promote the professional development of tribal members engaged in professions related to the access and preservation of historical and cultural collections and/or non-tribal members working for a tribal institution dedicated to the preservation of history and heritage in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho or Montana. The Western Archivists Meeting will be held April 22-25 in San Francisco, California. Past scholarship winners are welcome to apply, but priority will be given to new applicants.


Applicants must meet at least one of the following three criteria:

  1. A tribal member engaged in the archival profession.

  2. A tribal member engaged in an archival studies program, MLIS program, or a tribal college.

  3. An employee of a tribal archive or other tribal cultural heritage institution (such as  libraries and museums) in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho or Montana.

The scholarship will be awarded after the conference and recipients must attend the conference. All awardees are expected to write a short report (example), due June 30, 2020, about their conference experiences to be published on the NWA and NWA-NACR blogs. Last year’s scholarship awardees were Dyan Youpee and Jimmy Hall.


Current members of the NWA NACR Scholarships Committee will review applications and select three recipients. Applicants will be evaluated based on the case made in addressing the required questions in their application. Considerations will be made to provide geographic representation in the awards. The application deadline is March 9, 2020, and all applicants will be notified within two weeks of the application deadline.


  • A completed application (see below for the two short answer questions)
  • A current resume or curriculum vitae
  • The committee may contact you for additional information after your application submission
