Education Grants | 2019 ALRA Conference

(Formerly Travel Grants)

For many years, ALRA provided training grants to attract and support new attendees at its annual conference. This year, the Executive Board has decided to expand the program to also enable former participants to return to the conference and re-engage in ALRA activities.

We are pleased to announce that an annual fund of up to $5,000 will be allocated to an Education Grants Program. Grants of up to $1000 will be provided to first-time attendees or returning attendees to enable the grantee to attend the ALRA Annual Conference.

Additional Education Grants Allocated

After considerable interest from member agencies, the Executive Board has allocated another $10,000 for Education Grants.  These additional grants of up to $1000 will be provide to first-time attendees or returning attendees to enable the grantee to attend the ALRA Conference.  

Applications for the Education Grant must be submitted in writing to the Vice-President of Professional Development, Sarah Cudahy     scudahy@ieerb.in.gov  no later than June 20, 2019. Applications should provide a detailed description of how it meets the criteria below.

In assessing the requests for education grants, the Executive Board will consider various criteria, including, but not limited to:

  • The applicant is a member or employee of an ALRA member agency
  • Whether the person is a first-time attendee at the conference
  • Ensuring diverse representation from member agencies
  • The actual costs that will be offset by the education grant
  • The agencies' difficulty in underwriting the full cost of attendance at the annual conference

The Grant will be payable upon submission of receipts following the Conference. Acceptable reimbursable expenses include the hotel cost, transportation to and from the conference location or registration fees. ALRA will not reimburse any other expenses.
