Okay, the power and prestige may take more time, but the money is here and now. Being awarded a research grant is a great career-booster, earning respect for you and your institution.
I’m talking about the Frances Henne/YALSA/VOYA Research Grant, which annually awards $1,000 for the best research proposal submitted by a YALSA member.
Here are the basics: This grant of $1000 provides seed money for small-scale projects that will encourage research that responds to the YALSA Research Agenda.
