ALA Emerging Leaders Program (cont.)
Review the Project Proposal Submission Guidelines then submit your application by October 1.
An ALA division, round table, ethnic affiliate, state chapter, or AASL Affiliate will sponsor approximately one-third of the selected applicants. Each sponsor will contribute $1000 towards expenses ($500 for each conference). Those interested in being sponsored, can check the name of the unit on his/her application. You can also check with your state association and/or state chapter to find out if they are participating and how to apply for their sponsorship.
Sponsorship is not required for participation in the program. Anyone who is selected to participate in the program but not sponsored, will be expected to pay his own expenses.
Any organization interested in being a sponsor should contact the staff liaison listed, or complete the Intent to Sponsor an Emerging Leader form (pdf) and email it to the staff liaison.
