One grant of up to $1,000 to a USA librarian or library professional to attend a continuing education event or professional development conference offered by the funding source or by another eligible association (see below). Funding is intended to help the librarian or library professional to keep current in his or her career.

Funding may only be used to participate in continuing professional development events offered by the American Library Association (ALA), an ALA-related unit or association, State Library Associations, ASTD, the American Management Association (AMA), or any other Learn RT Board approved activity/event.

Grant monies will be available to the recipient during a twelve-month period spanning from one ALA Annual Conference to the next. Grant funds can be used to cover registration, travel, lodging, or other expenses related to the event. Documentation/receipts will be required prior to payment.

Up to $1,000

The awardee must attend the professional development event between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.

The recipient must be an active member of the sponsoring organization hosting the conference/event if the registration fee is higher for non-members.

Note: If the recipient is participating in a ALA or ALA-related event, monies will be transferred internally instead of being paid to the recipient.
