Apply for CRD Professional Development Funding

October 4, 2021

Are you planning spring and summer workshops? 

The Pennsylvania Library Association College and Research Division (CRD) is able to provide financial support to organizations within the Commonwealth that offer professional development programming of interest to Pennsylvania academic librarians through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funding from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 

If your group is planning a meeting or workshop in Pennsylvania, you may submit an application to the College and Research Division for consideration.

The primary requirement for funding is that the event includes educational or professional development for academic librarians, and that organizers collect assessment information about the program to be provided to the Office of Commonwealth Libraries in quarterly grant reports. Amounts requested generally should not exceed $2000.

Please visit the CRD website for more information and to apply:

Kind regards,
