2018 MAALL Travel Grants

Heading to Memphis in October? We encourage all members of MAALL to apply for a MAALL travel grant to help defray the cost of travel to the annual meeting. 


We offer three types of travel grants to help you Develop a Winning Strategy in Memphis. Submit your completed applications to eric_brust@ca8.uscourts.gov by COB Friday, August 24 for consideration. Recipients will be notified on Friday, August 31. 

Travel grants, including the Liz Glankler and Jo Ann Humphreys Travel Grants, make it possible for librarians to continue being involved at the regional level. Help us help you -- apply today!
