AALL offers Leadership Academy to its newer members to train for leadership roles. It is “designed as an intensive experience aimed at growing and developing leadership skills.” The ALL-SIS offers $1,000 grant to an ALL-SIS member to attend the Leadership Academy. The ALL-SIS Awards Committee invites applications for the AALL Leadership Academy Grant to ALL-SIS members who are accepted into the Academy.
To qualify for the Grant, the winner must be an ALL-SIS member who is accepted into the 2011 AALL Leadership Academy with demonstrated financial need. The winner must: (1) agree to accept an ALL-SIS committee position the year following the academy and (2) write a short article for the ALL-SIS Newsletter about the AALL Leadership Academy.
To apply for the 2011 AALL Leadership Academy grant, submit (1) a current resume and (2) two letters of recommendation (at least one from someone in a supervisory or managerial role) that discuss your potential to contribute to the leadership role in academic law librarianship and your need for the grant.
