Call for Applications: ILA Inclusive Travel Grants for National Conferences (Deadline Tues., Feb. 1)

(via the Illinois Library Association)

The Illinois Library Association is pleased to announce that applications for our new Inclusive Travel Grants for National Conferences are now being accepted. Each year, five $1,000 stipends (no reimbursement) will be awarded to librarians and library staff who have faced structural barriers to national participation, including those eligible for the ALA’s Spectrum Scholarships, people with disabilities, people who identify as LGBTQUIA+, and rural librarians or library staff.

The grants can be used to attend a variety of conferences, including the American Library Association Annual Conference, the Public Library Association Annual Conference, the Association of Rural and Small Libraries Conference, and the REFORMA Annual Conference, among others.

The deadline for the first-round of applications for this year is Tuesday, February 1, and recipients will be announced by Tuesday, February 15. Additional information is available here. If you have any questions about the grants, please contact ILA, at ila@ila.org.
