The Vermont Library Association Board wishes to promote professional librarianship in Vermont and to encourage involvement in professional development among its members.
VLA has created the VLA Professional Development Grants. These grants will award the recipient up to $250 for a professional development program such as a workshop, conference or continuing education course.
Applications are accepted twice a year and priority will be given by monetary need, library involvement, and leadership and commitment to Vermont libraries. Please see below for the application and deadline information. Grant recipients will be required to write a brief account of their professional development opportunity for the VLA News.
To be eligible, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Must be an active VLA member
- Must live in Vermont and/or work in a Vermont library and
- Must not have received a scholarship from VLA in the past 2 years.
