The purpose of the 3M/NMRT Professional Development Grant is to encourage professional development and participation by new ALA members in national ALA and NMRT activities. Applicants must be personal ALA/NMRT members who are working within the territorial United States.
Award considerations: (1) The applicant’s ability or initiative to attend future national conferences if finances are provided this year. (2) How the applicant intends to use the ALA conference experience at his/her home institution and local, state and regional associations. (3) The applicant’s involvement with local, state and regional associations. (4) Impact of winning the grant on the applicant’s current position and future career options. (5) Potential contributions the applicant will make to ALA and NMRT. (6) The committee also considers the applicant’s overall presentation. (7) Do not hesitate to apply for the grant because you feel you have not done enough as a member of NMRT. They are interested in potential and the ability and willingness to make future contributions. This is a professional development grant.
