Children's Literature Assembly: Student Travel Grant for NCTE 2019
Thank you for your interest in applying for an inaugural Student Travel Grant (STG) presented by the Children’s Literature Assembly (CLA). CLA will offer three STGs this year. Based on the applications received, one STG per student category will be awarded: undergraduate, graduate (Master's or Specialist's), and doctoral. In the event there are no applicants in a particular category, then multiple recipients from the other student categories may be selected.

Each recipient will receive $150 to help fund their conference registration and attendance at the CLA breakfast for the 2019 NCTE annual conference in Baltimore, Maryland (November 21-24). (Recipients would need to self-register for NCTE and the CLA breakfast. The $150 will be directly awarded to the recipients.)

Applications for the STG will undergo blind review by CLA Board and/or Student Committee members. To be considered for the STG, the applicant must:
* be an undergraduate or graduate student (at the time of NCTE 2019), and
* be a current CLA member.

By completing and submitting this application, the applicant agrees to the following if awarded the STG:
* attend the CLA Breakfast on Sunday, November 24, and
* volunteer for a minimum of two hours at the CLA table in the Exhibit Hall (shifts to be negotiated).

In addition to required attendance at the breakfast and volunteering at the exhibit table, STG recipients will be highly encouraged to attend other CLA events (e.g., Master Class, student social).

Preference will be given to applicants presenting in an accepted session on a topic related to children’s literature (whether as first or subsequent presenter), though those presenting on other topics or without an accepted session are also welcome to apply and will be considered.

To apply for the STG, please complete and submit this form by July 1, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Applicants will be notified about acceptance decisions by August 31, 2019. If you have questions about the STG, please contact Dr. Adam Crawley – CLA Student Committee chair (
