YA Author Grants!
Local public and school libraries within a community will be required to partner together to apply for a SAMMIE YA Author Grant of up to $1000 per quarter. Only two grants will be awarded per quarter and will be determined during the pilot year on a first come, first serve basis. Applicants may apply only once per fiscal year (July 1st – June 30th). If there are multiple schools which could partner with a public library or vice versa we encourage everyone to apply together.
