Jamboree Youth Scholarships Announced


SCGS has instituted a new Jamboree scholarship program for aspiring genealogists and family historians between the ages of 18 and 29 as of June 8, 2012. The scholarship will cover basic registration for the conference, which will be held June 8-10, 2012 in Burbank, California.

These young people will be admitted to Jamboree at a substantial discount. The special registration fee is $15 per day or $25 for all three days.

Tickets can also be purchased before May 28, 2012 for Thursday tours, pre-conference sessions, breakfasts, the Hollywood Gala on Friday evening and Hank Jones banquet on Saturday evening. These tickets are available at regular conference prices.

Scholarship recipients will receive a CD copy of the syllabus and may participate in class sessions, use of Tech Zone computers, Research Assistance provided by SCCAPG, scanning provided by Ancestry.com, and other activities reserved for paid attendees.

Regular-priced tickets can be purchased for Thursday pre-conference sessions, tours, breakfasts, the Hank Jones banquet on Saturday night, and the Hollywood GALA on Friday evening before May 28, 2012.

Online scholarship registration will be held pending receipt of a copy of the government-issued ID.  Photos of  IDs may be sent by email to Jamboree@scgsgenealogy.com (subject line SCHOLARSHIP ID) or US Postal mail to Jamboree Scholarship, SCGS, 417 Irving Drive, Burbank, CA 91504.  Proof of age must be received by SCGS no later than midnight May 28, 2012, or your Jamboree registration will be cancelled. 

A limited number of sponsorship slots are available. 

Scholarship funds were provided through the sale of raffle tickets for the 2011 Jamboree Quilt, which was created by members of GeneaQuilters, the Facebook group, and others in the genealogical community. We are very grateful for their support.
