For the first time this year, the ALL-SIS offered the AALL Leadership Academy Grant. The ALL-SIS Awards Committee invited ALL-SIS members who were accepted into the Academy to apply for the $1,000.00 grant. Some of the requirements for receiving the grant were financial need, potential for a future leadership role, agreeing to serve on one of ALL-SIS Committees and writing a short article for the Newsletter following the receipt of the grant.
