Continuing Education Grants
Washington State Library
ALA Grants

Professional Development Committee
WLA’s Professional Development Committee has seed money available for continuing education projects and endeavors of all kinds. Programs sponsored in the past have included specialized or local conferences, full- and half-day workshops, and printing of materials to be distributed statewide.

Planners and sponsors must follow WLA guidelines for continuing education programs, and must apply within the grant application framework. Workshops and projects are expected to be self-supporting, with the funds reimbursed to the WLA general fund.

To apply for CE seed money, complete the CE Seed Money Application and email it to the WLA office.
