Conference Scholarships


The President's Conference Scholarship


This scholarship was established in order to extend opportunities to participate in conference to member librarians who need financial assistance. The ACL Board of Directors has designated a specific amount to be used at the President's discretion to cover in-person or virtual conference package costs for members who apply. Travel costs are not included. Applicants must be 2022 members of the Association of Christian Librarians to be eligible for consideration.

If you are applying for an in-person conference scholarship, please note that priority is given to those who have never attended a physical ACL Conference.

All applications must be submitted by Thursday, March 31. Scholarship applicants will be notified via email by April 7. If you are not selected for the scholarship, early bird pricing will be honored.
