SANDALL members have a wide array of choices of professional conferences for which we can provide financial assistance. Members are encouraged to apply for a grant for conferences of their choice!
We will continue to solicit and award funding specifically for the AALL Annual Meeting and for SANDALL-sponsored programs. In addition to those, we plan to have two to three open grant cycles per year. During these open calls for funding requests, we will accept proposals to attend any educational conference so long as the applicant explains how it will benefit him or her professionally. Grant amounts and/or number of awardees vary each cycle.
The only requirements beyond the application are that:
1. Recipients will write an article for the newsletter describing their experience at the event.
2. Recipients are encouraged to participate more actively in SANDALL. If not already on a committee, they must join a committee and serve through the rest of the 2016-2017 or 2017-2018 year, depending on the date of the conference.
Here are some upcoming events that might be of interest:
* SLA 2017<http://www.sla.org/
* AALL 2017<http://www.aallnet.org/
Please submit proposals for Spring/Summer conferences for consideration. The deadline for submission is April 1st.
