Organizational Continuing Education Grant

This grant is intended for any individual or institutional member seeking assistance with the planning and promotion of a continuing education opportunity to be held in Saskatchewan and open to all SLA members.


You must hold an SLA individual membership or be covered by an institutional membership prior to applying. In cases where any resources of an institution/employer are implicated in the application, a letter of support from the official voting delegate or another appropriate representative of that institution must accompany the application.

Preference will be given to those who have not previously received a continuing education grant. Grants will not be awarded if suitable candidates do not apply.

Your application must contain:

  1. A description of the activity, conference, or event being planned
  2. An outline of event logistics like date and location
  3. A proposed budget of your expected costs
  4. A one paragraph rationale statement stating the potential impact this continuing education opportunity will have on the Saskatchewan library community. This may include: relevance to your own current work, limited access to professional development due to geography, limited access to financial supports, etc.
  5. A commitment to make the workshop open to all SLA members
  6. A commitment to acknowledge the SLA grant and to include the SLA logo in event promotional materials
  7. Any required support letter(s) if applicable, as outlined under the Eligibility section
