ndla professional Development Grant

Log in

NDLA believes that furthering an individual's skills is beneficial to the North Dakota Library environment. Each year NDLA sets aside general fund dollars for this purpose. The Professional Development grant may be used for college or university classroom work, independent study, workshops, conferences, or participation in any committee that may benefit the library community of North Dakota.

Each year, one awardee may be granted up to $1250.
