Small Library NLA Conference Grant Application

The small library NLA Conference Grant will award four (4) $250 scholarships for attendance at the NLA Annual Conference. This scholarship is made possible by an anonymous donor.
The money will be distributed as grants to:
  1. Library employees, professional or paraprofessional (not volunteers or board members)

  2. Who are joining/renewing at the "regular member" rate

  3. Who work at small libraries (service population under 2,500, up to two staff per library)

  4. Who are paying NLA membership dues out of their own pocket (we will take your word for it on the honor system, but please do not apply for this scholarship if someone else pays for your membership dues)

One-time grants of $250 each will be awarded to 4 qualifying applicants on a first-come, first-served basis.
