Grant Information & Forms

Annually, the South Central Kansas Library System has $45,000 available for Continuing Education Registration Reimbursement Grants. Eligibility is open to public, school, academic, and institutional member library staff, as well as public library trustees who attend trustee-related programs or conferences during the 2020 calendar year. The purpose of the grant is to reimburse member librarians, staff, or public library trustees for registration costs to attend library-related continuing education activities during the grant funding calendar year. Other costs, such as travel, food, lodging, and textbooks are the responsibility of the member library, librarian or trustee.

Funded activities must occur between January 1 and December 31, 2020. Applications for events that do not occur in calendar year 2020 will not be accepted.  Other costs, such as travel, food, lodging and textbooks are the responsibility of the applicant or applicant's library. The deadline for submission is December 15, 2020. Grants in accordance with eligibility guidelines may be awarded in amounts up to $750. 

Applicants must provide  (a) documentation of registration and (b) evidence of payment with their applications. SCKLS requests applicants to make their own registrations with the CE provider and then submit documentation of registration and payment for reimbursement. SCKLS reserves the right to require additional documentation to verify registration and payment.
