Andornot strongly believes in the value of attending conferences to foster professional development.
Two years ago, we introduced the Andornot Professional Development Grant, a new, annual grant to help you attend a conference or event as part of your ongoing professional development activities. Of the many excellent applications we received each year, Mark Goodwin of the BC Cancer Agency was selected in 2016, and Gayle Graham of the Nova Scotia Health Authority received the grant in 2017. Both used the funds to help them attend the Canadian Health Libraries Association Conference.
We are very pleased to be able to offer the grant again this year, to help you attend an event in 2019.
One grant of up to $1,000 is available, with an application deadline of January 31st, 2019. The funds can be used for registration or travel related expenses. We hope that this grant will provide an opportunity for someone without access to funds from their organization to network and enrich their knowledge.
To apply, just complete this application form. The recipient will be selected in early February, allowing time to register for a conference at any point in the year.
