Pat Carterette Professional Development Grant


This grant, in honor of the passing of our past-president, Pat Carterette, is designed to honor her passion for professional development in the field of library and information sciences. A former staff development coordinator at the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library (OH) and the first Continuing Education Coordinator for the State Library of Georgia, Pat's legacy focused on providing outstanding educational opportunities for her colleagues to grow and develop within their career field.

The ALA Learning Round Table (LRT) will award up to $1,000 to an individual to attend a professional development event between September 1, 2023 and August 31, 2024. Documentation/receipts will be required prior to payment. If the recipient is participating in a ALA or ALA-related event, monies will be transferred internally instead of being paid to the recipient. Any un-used grant monies can be applied to other events during the award period (subject to pre-approval by LRT). Un-used funds at the end of the award period will be forfeited.

DEADLINE: March 31, 2023

Grant applications are due by March 31, 2023. The selected recipient of the grant will be notified prior to the ALA Annual Conference in June.

Funding for this grant comes from gifts and donations made in Pat's honor and through the proceeds from LearnRT pre-conference events and sponsorship of the LearnRT Training Showcase. Gifts/donations for the continuation of this grant can be directed to:
