2020 Sam Rogers Conference Scholarships Application

A long-time supporter of NCMC, Sam Rogers of Carolina Publishing & Associates has worked tirelessly on behalf of North Carolina’s museums, historic sites, and parks to promote cultural and natural heritage places, people, and events through the widely respected Carolina Heritage Magazine.  Sam has generously provided funding for three scholarships to attend the 2020 NCMC Conference in Rocky Mount.  Applicants must adhere to eligibility requirements, submit application materials prior to the deadline of January 31, 2020, and attend conference events.  In addition to covering full conference registration, Sam’s generosity will provide each recipient with a small stipend for travel expenses.

Eligible applicants will be career professionals with at least 1 year of experience and be currently employed in the museum field in North Carolina.  A letter of support from the applicant’s institution will be required.  Applicants, or their museum, must be members of NCMC.

Nominations that are incomplete may be returned, requesting missing information, or may be excluded from consideration, depending on the timeframe and other factors.

This year all completed award nomination forms and required support documentation must be submitted by January 31, 2020.

Acceptable formats include .pdf and .jpeg files. Accompanying letters of support, if required, must be sent by the letter-writer directly to awards@ncmuseums.org. Please reference the award in the subject of your email, for example 2020 NCMC Rogers Conference Scholarship.
