The Mike Jaugstetter Memorial Leadership Grant honors the superb leadership skills in librarianship which Mike Jaugstetter demonstrated while he was employed as the State Librarian of North Dakota. The grant money may be used for library leadership institutes or programs.
Each year, one awardee may be granted up to $1250.
Current Professional Development Committee members are not eligible to apply for grants. The 2023 Section Chairs are also ineligible to apply for grants, as they will become members of the Committee in January 2024 and will be voting on the grant awardees.
The 2024 grant application period will open on October 9, 2023. Applications will close at 11:59 p.m. on January 7, 2024.
A portion of expenses (dependent upon the NDLA budget) will be reimbursed upon completion of travel.
Awardee and NDLA will enter into a written contract regarding completion of conditions.
