Grant of the Week: MARAC Arline Custer Memorial Award
Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the MARAC Arline Custer Memorial Award.
The Arline Custer Memorial Award is presented by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) Arline Custer Memorial Award Committee. This award honors the memory of Arline Custer (1909-1975), MARAC member and editor of the National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections. The Arline Custer Memorial Award recognizes the best books and articles written or compiled by individuals and institutions in the MARAC region: the District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
Works under consideration include, but are not limited to: monographs, popular narratives, reference works and exhibition catalogs using archival sources. They must be relevant to the general public as well as the archival community. They also should be original and well researched using available sources. In addition, they should be clearly presented, well written and organized. Visual materials, if used, should be appropriate to the text.
Individuals or institutions may submit up to two works published between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Preference will be given to works by archivists.
Up to three awards may be given, with a maximum value of $200.00 for books and $100.00 for articles. The 2021 award(s) may be announced at a fall 2021 MARAC business meeting or shared with MARAC members via another means.
