Deadline: December 15, 2007
But you still have until December 15th to apply for the 3M/NMRT Professional Development Grant. Members of ALA’s New Members Round Table (NMRT) can apply to receive a grant, sponsored by 3M Library Systems, which will cover expenses to attend the ALA Annual Conference, June 26 to July 2, 2008, in Anaheim, CA.
Take a look at the August 2007 issue of Footnotes to read about the ALA experiences of last year’s winners (http://www.ala.org/ala/nmrt/footnotes/august2007a/footnotesaug2007.htm). You will see how professionally rewarding attending an ALA conference can be.
The application form and further information about the grant is available on the NMRT website (http://www.ala.org/ala/nmrt/applyforfunds/3mawardinformation.htm). Remember, you must be a current member of NMRT in order to apply. To join NMRT, visit the ALA website (http://ala.org) and follow the “Join/Renew ALA” link to add to your ALA membership.
