Support Staff Presenter Grant

Statement of Purpose

The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) seeks to encourage support staff development and participation in ALAO activities. To that end, the ALAO Executive Board may award up to $150 annually to support and encourage support staff to present at the ALAO Annual Conference. Grant monies are intended to assist with the costs incurred in preparing the presentation and modest travel costs associated with the presentation.

General Information

The Support Staff Presenter Grant is awarded to one program, either a presentation or poster session at the ALAO Annual Conference. If more than one support staff presenter is involved in a program, the grant is awarded to the program. Disbursement of grant monies amongst the support staff presenters is at the discretion of the eligible parties. Grant monies may be applied to registration, travel, hotel, and supplies. If grant monies have been dispersed and grant recipient fails to present at the conference, the full amount of the grant check must be returned to ALAO.


Support staff currently employed in an Ohio academic library, which has submitted a program proposal approved by the Conference Planning Committee for inclusion in the Annual Conference program are eligible to apply for the Support Staff Presenter Grant. Completed applications include completed application form, program proposal submission and an essay of 250 words or less describing how attending and presenting at the ALAO Conference will help enhance the applicant’s library and work experience. ALAO membership is not required.
