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.
  • 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.
  • All awards are considered by KAAN’s Professional Development Fund Committee (chair, vice chair, treasurer, and KAAN members) in a blind review (i.e. all identifying information will be removed before the application is considered).
  • There are three deadlines for applying for professional development funds: May 1, August 1, and December 1.
  • Awards, when approved, will be $200 minimum.
  • All awards will be based on availability of funds.
  • KAAN will only reimburse an individual after the completion of the activity.
