AIEF Access Leadership Scholars Program

Palmyra, NJ (7/31/18) –

The Foundation (ARMA International Educational Foundation - AIEF), is excited to announce the availability of the Access Leadership Scholarship program. If you are currently employed as a RIM professional and are working towards a college degree, you may be eligible for a scholarship of up to $6,000 from the Access Leadership Scholars program. The goal of this program, now in its fifth year, is to enable outstanding RIM practitioners to advance to positions of greater responsibility that require college degrees and to advance their leadership skills for roles in the field of information management.

Awards have been made in prior years to RIM practitioners working in six states across the U.S. at companies including Phillips 66, Booz Allen Hamilton, Sealy & Co, Nova Southeastern University and Houston Community College. Several awardees recounted being the first in their families to go to college.

Access CEO Rob Alston says that, “Access has long been committed to active participation in our local communities and in the broader community of RIM practitioners. We believe that this level of engagement is part of who we are and how we make a difference as a company and as Access team members.” Mike Smith, Chair of the Foundation, states that “This program has enabled larger scholarships, making a real difference in upward mobility for talented people held back by the absence of a degree.”

Deadline for applications is August 31, 2018.

Criteria and applications are now available on the Foundation website:

AIEF Call For Researchers

Call for Researchers: Industry in One Series

The Foundation is currently seeking up to six (3 US, 3CA) researchers to work with us on a freelance basis. Each paper will identify the state of information management within the industry, highlighting records management in a condensed report (25-30 pages) for each of the following initial industries to be addressed: energy, finance, and legal. A report is to be generated for each topic by a subject matter expert (SME) to provide distinct United States and Canadian perspectives. It is conceivable that a SME with expertise and extensive experience in both countries could conduct research for both reports in a specific industry. In this case, the researcher would be awarded two contracts: one for the United States project, and one for the Canadian project.

The Foundation would like to see this research address, at a minimum, the following questions:

  • For the purposes of this research, define the scope of this industry and its role in the general economy.
  • What is the primary regulatory agency or oversight body that oversees the industry?
  • What are the information management-related risks for the industry?
  • What record categories are critical to this industry and central to its operations?
  • What are the primary laws and regulations that effect information management?
  • What operational considerations affect information management?
  • What are industry best practices for information management?
  • What is the future outlook for the industry?
  • Are records managers present in the industry? If not, who manages and controls the records?

The report will be reviewed prior to publication. A Foundation liaison will be assigned to the project and be a resource with the subject matter expert through its duration.

Available Funding: $2,000.00 (USD) per topic, per country, paid in three installments ($500, $500, $1,000).

Contract Term: To be negotiated. Goal is 3-6 months from the date of signed contract.

Applications:  Please send a resume with a cover letter detailing why you are the person for this project, relevant experience, and suggestions for the project as email attachments to:  coordinator@armaedfoundation.org

Copyright: Copyright will be retained by the Foundation.

Deadline for Applications: February 9, 2018
