The Legacy Endowment Fund has an approved four-fold purpose: scholarship, research, professional development, and conference attendance. If you have a need that fits within one of these four areas, we would love to receive your application for a legacy grant. The application deadline is November 1. However, applications can be submitted at any time. The Legacy Endowment Committee meets after the November 1 deadline to review the applications and make a decision about awarding funds. The distribution of funds occurs each year in January and may be split between multiple applicants. To guide you in the process of understanding which category to choose and to see what information to include, we have provided four sample applications, one in each category, to get you started. Grant award winners are expected to give back to the association through a journal article or conference presentation as a means of reporting back about the use of the legacy funds when appropriate.
