In 2017, MARAC received a donation of $500 from an anonymous donor as a challenge grant. MARAC was required to raise matching funds in order to receive the funds from the donor. Those funds created the MARAC Graduate School Archival Education Scholarship for students who live or attend a school in the MARAC region and plan to enter the archival profession.
MARAC was excited to be able to make two awards for the Spring 2018 semester:
- Regina Carra is a graduate student at Queens College, City University of New York in the Dual Degree Program in Library Science and History with a concentration in archives and the preservation of cultural materials. She currently works as the Archives Project Assistant at Mark Morris Dance Group.
- Carmen A. Collins currently works as a Records and Information Analyst for Booz Allen Hamilton while pursuing her MS in Information and Library Science with a concentration in Archives and Digital Curation at the University of Maryland’s iSchool.
Congratulations to Regina and Carmen!
