2018 WNYGS Continuing Education Scholarship


We all remember our first genealogical discovery, our first brick wall broken, and our first genealogical mentor. It is in this spirit of learning and support that an anonymous member donor has funding two scholarships in memory of her mother-in-law, a dedicated family historian and mentor.

The Western New York Genealogical Society will be offering our members the opportunity to be selected for one of the following:

> A $485 tuition scholarship for a first-time GRIP participant who attends "Intermediate Genealogy: Tools for Digging Deeper" with expert Paula Stuart-Warren, CG®, FMGS, FUGA.

> A $475 on-campus housing scholarship [apartment-style private bedroom, shared kitchen, dining, and living room] at Daemen College.

These scholarships will provide partial reimbursement for participation in the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP) in Amherst, New York during the week of July 29-August 3, 2018.

For consideration, the course must advance the professional and/or research goals of the applicant. Applicants and scholarship recipients must be paid members of the Society for the current membership year (May 1, 2018 – April 30, 2019). The deadline for applications is June 30, 2018. Please complete the form and email to outreach@wnygs.org. A representative of the Programming Committee will notify all winners no later than July 7th.
