Annual Meeting Grants

AALL CS-SIS Grant for Students and Newer Librarians:

The purpose of the AALL CS-SIS Grant for Students and Newer Librarians is to provide financial assistance for newer librarians or students in library/information school or law school to attend the AALL annual meeting or a workshop offered at the annual meeting. Among the factors taken into consideration are qualities or activities that indicate the person shows promise of future involvement in the law library profession, especially those who are directly involved in providing technology support of any kind within law libraries.  There is one grant in the amount of $700 available for students or newer librarians this year.

AALL CS-SIS Grant for Experienced Librarians:

The purpose of the AALL CS-SIS Grant for Experienced Librarians is to provide financial assistance to librarians who have a demonstrated commitment to the law library profession, especially those who are directly involved in providing technology support of any kind within law libraries.  The $700 grant may be used to attend the 2019 AALL Annual Meeting & Conference in Washington, D.C., or registration fees for another educational event, such as a pre-conference workshop held in Washington, D.C. All funds are provided by the AALL CS-SIS.

Successful CS-SIS Grant awardees are expected to write an article about some aspect of their experience attending the AALL Annual Meeting and Conference in Washington, D.C.  The article may feature an in-depth review of one program attended or an overview of your whole conference experience, for example.

To apply for a grant, fill out the requisite application (Newer Lib Grant Application 2019 or Experienced Lib Grant Application 2019) describing how you meet the criteria for the applicable grant, and send it to C.J. Pipins, Chair of the CS-SIS Grants and Awards Committee, at capipinsii@law.umaryland.edu.  Applications are due via email by midnight on Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
