The VALL Executive Board has directed the Grants committee to award three grants to help members interested in attending the AALL Annual Meeting in San Antonio. The first of these grants is the Barbara Cumming Professional Development Grant in the amount of $500. This grant is named after a long-time VALL member and was established by her firm upon her death. Priority for this grant will be given to a firm librarian. The other two grants are VALL/AALL Travel Grants in the amount of $1000 each.
All three grants use the common application form found on the VALL wiki. The application form and information about the grants can be found here: http://vall.pbworks.com/w/page/23509251/VALL%20Grants
The deadline for all of the grants is 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
