Award Criteria: The intent of the Northern British Columbia Archives is to provide a scholarship for graduate students who pursue archival research at the NBC Archives for their graduate thesis or graduate project. It may also encourage overall future use of the holdings of the Northern BC Archives for academic research work.
The Northern BC Archives acquires unique holdings related to the industrial, economic, and technological development of Northern British Columbia. Many of the Archives’ major holdings provide key evidence of the impact of natural resource developments on Northern BC’s economy, society and natural landscapes - key themes of UNBC’s Research Areas. As well the Archives holds records relating to literary and cultural developments, including unpublished records of Canadian/BC writers from Northern BC. Three bodies of archival records held by NBCA have been designated by the Department of Canadian Heritage as archival records of outstanding provincial and national significance: The Honourable Iona Campagnolo fonds; The Bridget Moran fonds and The Brian Fawcett Literary fonds. See the Archives on-line resources for detailed holdings information: https://library.unbc.ca/archives The Foundation supporting this scholarship has provided significant financial support towards the creation and enhancement of many of these finding aids, virtual exhibits and research guides and its continued support and valued contributions has led to this new opportunity to now promote these archival records for in-depth graduate level research.
