The week-long annual summer Archival Education and Research Institutes trains archival professionals and scholars in the skills, knowledge base, and abilities to address current and emergent needs associated with rapid technological change, new forms of archiving and archival documentation, and cultural and societal diversity. With this four-year grant, the University of California, Los Angeles, and its partners, the University of Michigan and the University of Oklahoma, will provide scholarship support to doctoral students and junior faculty who are not yet tenured to participate in the summer institutes. It will also develop a targeted recruitment and outreach program to encourage minority students to consider entering a doctoral program focusing on Archival Science with a view to becoming faculty in the field.
