We are excited to announce that members of ALA’s New Members Round Table (NMRT) can apply to receive a $1000 grant through the MANGO/NMRT Professional Development Grant.  Funds are given to assist with expenses to attend the ALA Annual Conference, June 22 – June 27, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. This award is generously sponsored by MANGO Languages. Deadline: Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 5 pm (EST).


Applicants must be a current member of NMRT in order to apply.  If you want to be considered for the award but aren't yet a member of NMRT, you can join now. Just visit the ALA website and follow the “Join ALA” link to add NMRT to your ALA membership. It is well worth the low cost!  Successful applicants will show how their attendance at the ALA Annual Conference will impact their home institution, NMRT or another ALA organization, and their personal professional development.


Application available now.


If you have questions or want additional information, contact Katy Holder, Chair of the NMRT Professional Development Grant Committee, at
