Apply for the Rachel Chan Memorial Grant!

FLA is now 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.  

All FLA members are eligible to apply, however priority is given to applicants who meet the following criteria:

  • 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

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.

Winners agree to write a brief article about the conference, and their experience attending, for the website.
