News: Financial Aid Resources for Summer Associates Program

11/5/14 – This morning I posted the application notice for the Mortenson Center for International Library Programs annual Summer Associates Program.  This is a 3-week long professional development program for librarians from outside of the United States.  The program costs $3500 (US) plus travel expenses so I inquired about possible financial aid resources and just received the following reply which hopefully will help you to be able to apply and attend the program:

We usually direct Associate program applicants to organizations that give grants for training:

American Library Association:
