The Assembly on Literature for Adolescents of the National Council of
Teachers of English (ALAN, http://www.alan-ya.org/; membership with journal
is $30 per year; the annual 2-day YA lit workshop is incredible) is glad to
be providing several grants that are of interest to school and public
librarians working with tweens/teens; to students focusing on teaching or
other aspects of YA literature; to new middle and/or high school teachers;
and to those interested in funding for research projects in YA literature.
Here are the grants:

(1)  NEW! The Cart/Campbell Grant for librarians offers $500 funding plus
complimentary registration toward attendance at the annual two-­day ALAN
Workshop which is held at the annual convention of the National Council of
Teachers of English on the Monday and Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving Day.
Eligible applicants are practicing librarians working with teens in high
school, junior high school, middle school, or public libraries. Membership
in ALAN is required for consideration. One Campbell/Cart Grant will be
awarded annually, and each recipient may only receive the grant once. For
more information and the grant application form, go to
http://www.alan-ya.org/awards/the-cartcampbell-grant/

(2)  NEW! The Smith/Carlsen Grant for graduate students offers $500 funding
plus complimentary registration toward attendance at the annual 2-day ALAN
Workshop. Eligible applicants must be enrolled as full-time graduate
students in a program focused on English Education, Literacy Education,
and/or Young Adult Literature and must not have attended an ALAN Workshop
previously. Membership in ALAN is required for consideration. One
Smith/Carlsen Grant will be awarded annually, and each recipient may only
receive the grant once. For more information and the grant application
form, go to http://www.alan-ya.org/awards/the-smithcarlsen-grant/

And the grants we have come to look forward to every year:

(3)   The Gallo Grants were established in 2003 by former ALAN Award and
Hipple Award recipient Don Gallo to encourage educators in their early
years of teaching to attend the ALAN Workshop for the first time. The
grants provide funding—up to $750 each—for two classroom teachers in middle
school or high school each year to attend the ALAN Workshop. (The amount of
a grant may be less than $750 if the applicant lives within commuting
distance of the convention location where airfare and housing would not be
necessary or has access to other funding). In addition to the $750 grant,
the registration fee for the workshop will also be covered. Recipients will
receive half of the grant ($375) before the workshop. The remaining half of
the grant will be disbursed at the end of the ALAN Workshop. The ALAN
Workshop is held at the annual convention of the National Council of
Teachers of English on the Monday and Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving Day.
Applicants must be teaching full-time; must have been classroom teachers
for less than five years prior to the year in which they are applying; and
must not have attended an ALAN Workshop previously. Membership in ALAN is
not required for consideration, though applicants are expected to become
ALAN members if they receive this grant. For more information and the grant
application form, go to http://www.alan-ya.org/awards/gallo-grants/

(4)   Members of ALAN may apply for the ALAN Foundation Grant for funding
(up to $1,500) for research in young adult literature. Proposals are
reviewed by the five most recent presidents of ALAN. Awards are made
annually in the fall and are announced at the ALAN breakfast during the
NCTE convention in November. The application deadline each year is
September 15th. For more information and the grant application form, go to
