Assembly on Literature for Adolescents of NCTE (ALAN)
Grants of up to $750 to USA, Canada, and International early-career middle school and high school teachers to attend an annual literature workshop. Applicants will be evaluated on their ability to demonstrate their understanding of the importance of young adult literature, as well as how they intend to use young adults books and the resources they acquire at the workshop in their own classroom.
The Gallo Grants were established in 2003 by former ALAN Award and Hipple Award recipient Don Gallo to encourage educators in their early years of teaching to attend the ALAN Workshop for the first time.
The ALAN Workshop is held at the annual convention of the National Council of Teachers of English on the Monday and Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving Day.
