NJLLA has two grants available this year to send our chapter members to the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) conference in Austin this summer from July 15-18. And heads up – one of the due dates to apply is coming up fast!
One grant is our annual Founders Grant. The purpose of this Grant is to financially assist a member of NJLLA to attend the AALL Annual Meeting. This NJLLA Grant covers the cost of registration, transportation, and hotel accommodations up to $1,500. Receipts for these costs must be submitted to the NJLLA Treasurer. Applications are due April 17, 2017.
The other grant comes to us from AALL. Each Annual Meeting, AALL underwrites one free full registration ($599.00 value) for a number of chapters on a rotation basis. NJLLA members are eligible for the grant this year. AALL’s goal is to provide an enriching experience as the member learns and networks with colleagues from across the country. Applicant must be a member of the New Jersey Law Librarians Association and a newer member of the American Association of Law Libraries (joined AALL in 2008 or later.) Applications and essays for this grant are due very soon — March 29, 2017.
For both of these grants, prior grant recipients (within the last five years) and current members of the Grants & Awards Committee are not eligible to apply.
Full application information and details are available on the applications below.
Questions may be directed to the Chair of our Grants & Awards Committee, Kathy Taggart, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-422-6442.
