ALAO seeks to encourage support staff development and participation in ALAO activities. ALAO also seeks to provide opportunities for students and new librarians to grow professionally towards a career in academic libraries. In recognition of this, ALAO awards two presenter grants, one for support staff and the other for students, to assist with presenting at the ALAO Annual Conference. Grant monies will be awarded up $150 annually for each grant. Grant monies are intended to assist with the costs incurred in preparing the presentation and modest travel costs associated with the presentation.
All grant applications will be considered by the ALAO Presenter Grant Committee. Only presenters of presentations or poster sessions chosen for inclusion in the conference by the 2011 Conference Planning Committee will be eligible for final consideration for the grant.
