The Read to Me team is excited to support attendance to the Early Years Conference on October 24-25, 2018 in Boise. Idaho library staff and trustees in publicly-funded libraries and schools who are interested in attending have two options for financial assistance through ICfL:
Option A: ICfL pays Registration Fee, $125. ICfL pays for hotel room October 24 if traveling more than 50 miles one way, and October 23-24 if traveling more than 100 miles one way. Travel is not reimbursed. Meals are not reimbursed (breakfast and lunch are provided both conference days). Must submit this form by September 1, 2018.
The number of scholarships for this conference are limited and applications will be approved on a first-come first-served basis. Selected applicants will be required to participate in, or view a recording of, a webinar relating to Trauma Informed/Sensitive Libraries after the conference (date TBD). Participants will also be required to fill out a short survey after the conference.
Option B: First-Time Attendance CE Grant for the Early Years Conference – ICfL provides Continuing Education (CE) grants to library staff to attend a library-related conference for the first time. The Early Years Conference meets this requirement. To apply for one of these grants, applicants must:
live at least 50 miles from the site of the conference (Boise);
have travel, registration and hotel costs of at least $250 (max grant amount is $900);
agree to submit to a one-month and a six-month follow-up report to ICfL.
This is a reimbursement grant. Grant funds will be reimbursed for allowable travel expenses when the one-month follow up report is submitted. Applicants are responsible for their own registration, travel and hotel arrangements. Applications must be received by September 4. To apply for a First-Time Attendance Grant, please contact Tammy Hawley-House and she will review the process and requirements with you:
