SRRT Herbert Biblo Conference Travel Grants - Application Form

Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) members and leaders play a critical role in the efficacy of the round table - the ability to successfully carry out the mission of the task forces, to engage new members, and to run the meetings at ALA Annual and Midwinter Meetings. The Herb Biblo Conference Travel Grants sponsored by the Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) will help finance attendance at the ALA Annual Conference. The $1000 award covers limited fees related to airfare, lodging, and conference registration. SRRT will fund up to two applicants per year.  


The SRRT Conference Travel Grants Ad Hoc Selection Committee will consider the following in its deliberations:

  • The applicant's conference interests and goals regarding ALA and SRRT
  • The applicant's potential contributions to ALA and SRRT
  • How the applicant intends to use the ALA conference experience in their career, at their home institution, and/or in local, state and regional associations


Applicants must be personal ALA/SRRT members. 


The deadline to apply is December 15 of each year. Nominations received by 11:59pm CST on December 15, 2019 will be considered for the 2020 award. The timestamp on the application submission shall be confirmed. All applicants will be notified of the Ad Hoc Selection Committee's decision by January 15, 2020. Recipients will receive half of the award prior to conference, and the remaining half after conference.
