WHEAT RIDGE, Colo., 24 May 2019 – The Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) is now accepting applications for the APG Young Professional Scholarship. The scholarship goes to a young professional or a student who aspires to a professional career in genealogy. The scholarship awards a registration for the APG Professional Management Conference (PMC) and a stipend of up to $1,000 to defray costs of travel and lodging at the conference. The winner will be announced in July 2019 for attendance at the APG PMC 2019, which will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, on 19–21 September 2019.
“Young professionals help bring energy and new ideas to the genealogy field,” said Billie Stone Fogarty, APG President. “As this is APG’s 40th anniversary, it is appropriate that we offer an up-and-coming genealogist this opportunity to learn more about the field at the premier conference for genealogy professionals.
