AERI is also designed to encourage the creation of a larger and more diverse cohort of doctoral students in Archival Studies. The Emerging Archival Scholars Program (2011-2015) provides up to six scholarships to attend AERI 2015 as well as additional mentoring and research opportunities for students at the undergraduate and graduate levels who are considering a doctoral degree in Archival Studies. American citizens and lawful permanent residents are eligible including, but not limited to, persons who are African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American, or Puerto Rican, as well as other individuals who can share insights that assist in the diversification of Archival Studies.
