Professional Development Fund

KAAN professional development awards provide current KAAN members the opportunity to seek funding to grow and expand as professionals. Please review the following guideline regarding submitting an application for, and receiving, a professional development award:
  • All applicants must be current KAAN members. Non-members can apply, but must pay the annual dues to receive their award. 
  • Preference will be given to applicants who do not have other funding sources and/or have not been awarded a KAAN professional development award within the past 12 months, and/or are current KAAN members. 
  • All awards are considered by KAAN’s Professional Development Fund Committee (chair, vice chair, and treasurer).
  • There are three deadlines for applying for professional development funds: February 1, August 1, and December 1.
  • All awards will be based on availability of funds.
  • KAAN will only reimburse an individual after the completion of the activity.
