The CALL Grants Committee encourages members to apply for a CALL grant. If you have any questions, please contact Heidi Frostestad Kuehl, Grants Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org / 312.503.4725.
An applicant must have a minimum of 12 months membership in CALL, and be a current member of CALL with the current year's dues paid at the time of application.
An applicant should have demonstrated participation in CALL activities such as program or meeting attendance, committee work or holding office. First-time applicants will receive priority.
Factors that the committee will consider are suitability of the educational program/meeting/workshop to the professional development of the applicant; contribution record of applicant in CALL and/or AALL; potential or proven ability of the applicant in the field of law librarianship; and financial need.
Qualifying continuing education programs include programs sponsored by CALL, AALL, SLA , or CLS. Members may receive grants to other events, such as conferences, workshops and special institutes, when the topic is of importance to the law library field and professional development.
Grants have been awarded for amounts ranging from $100-750.
An applicant may apply if he/she was a grant recipient in a prior year. A member will only be awarded one grant in a fiscal year, which runs from September 1st through August 31st. An application for another grant can be made when three years have passed since the award of the prior grant.
Grant recipients must agree to write an article for the CALL Bulletin. Grant recipients are encouraged to serve on a CALL committee for a year after receiving the grant. Incomplete applications and those postmarked after the deadline indicated at the top of the grant application will not be considered.
