The ALA Learning Round Table will award up to $1,000 to an individual to attend a professional development event between July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018.  The award recipient will be required to share their new learning with other Round Table members in some way (newsletter, blog, list serv, etc.).  Applicants do not have to be ALA members to apply.  Applicants must respond to this Survey Monkey questionnaire by February 15, 2017 at 11:59 pm CST. 

This grant, named after our much admired past-president, the late Pat Carterette, is designed to honor her passion for professional development in the field of library and information sciences. A former staff development and continuing education coordinator, Pat believed in quality library service, leadership development, and continual learning.  

Please note: The maximum grant amount is $1,000 (with receipts). Any costs above this will be the responsibility of the participant.  In addition to the financial award, the recipient will also be provided with a member of LRT, who will serve as a personal "Career Development Mentor" throughout the award year.  The recipient will be notified in May of 2017.
