Give to the Slater Student Scholarship Fund!

The Association for Gravestone Studies (AGS) promotes the academic study of gravemarkers, cemeteries and related topics internationally through its annual conference and peer-reviewed journal Markers. For many years, scholarships have been awarded to students whose educational pursuits are aligned with AGS’ founding purpose in 1977 — to further the study and preservation of gravestones. In 2022, AGS’ student scholarship award was renamed The Slater Student Scholarship Award in honor of Dr. James A. Slater, an early pioneer of the organization and one of the most influential voices in the field of gravestone studies.

The Slater Student Scholarship provides the award recipient with complimentary conference registration, on-campus lodging, and on-campus meals during the AGS annual conference. The recipient receives a complimentary student membership in AGS for one year beginning June of the year of the award. Scholarship recipients agree to present their research at the annual conference if asked to do so; their work may also be published in Markers, the AGS Quarterly, or in other ways approved by AGS.
