ARA International Engagement Bursaries – General Information

These bursaries aim to support the Archives & Records Association's strategic propositions through the allocation of bursaries for international activities to archivists, records managers and conservators. The specific Archives & Records Association's strategic propositions supported are:

  • The membership proposition
  • The learning and development proposition
  • The standards and best practice proposition
  • The promotion and advocacy proposition
  • The professional cooperation proposition

Association members may apply for bursaries to support

  • attendance at international conferences
  • training which will assist members in establishing international networks and enable them to take advantage of the global workplace
  • members carrying out international roles
  • international projects

We particularly encourage bursary applications for activities that will benefit Association members as a whole, for example through

  • international work on best practice or standards
  • learning that will be passed on to other Association members
  • meetings and projects that will have clear benefits for the profession and Association members

Applications must be submitted in advance of the proposed activity. Applications are considered on receipt.
