The Institute for Genealogical and Historical Research (IGHR) at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, is one of the United States’s premiere educational opportunities for genealogists. Every year hundreds of genealogy enthusiasts from across the country meet for a week of classes in one of eight courses.
The Jean Thomason Scholarship for IGHR was established in 2007 in honor of Jean Thomason, the director of the Institute from 1997-2007. The scholarship covers the cost of tuition at the Institute. Anyone currently employed by a library is eligible to apply. Applications for the 2012 Scholarship are due by 1 December 2011.
