FLA is presently accepting online applications for the annual Rachel Chan Memorial Grant: http://www.fla.org/home/grant
The Rachel Chan Memorial Grant is named in honour of a former University of Calgary Librarian and FLA Executive member. She passed away in 2010, to the regret and sadness of many in the library community.
Each year a grant of up to $500 is awarded to an FLA member in good standing to assist them to attend a library conference related to their work. The grant may be applied to cover registration fees, accommodation and/or travel expenses to the conference.
Though all FLA members (excluding Executive members) are eligible to apply, priority is given to applicants who:
· Receive little or no funding for such travel, e.g. employer-paid grants, grants from other library associations, etc.,
· Have not attended a professional conference in the past two years,
· Will be presenting at the conference
Winners must agree to write a brief article about the conference, and their experience attending, for the next FLAG issue after the conference.
Applications will be accepted until Friday March 16th, 2012.
