The Association of Leadership Educators (ALE) invites ALE members to apply for a limited number of small grants to support new initiatives to advance the following priorities:
Develop and support programs that will contribute significantly to the Association of Leadership Educators' mission to strengthen and sustain the expertise of professional leadership educators.

Expenditure and Reporting Requirements
Notification of awards will be made by November 31, 2019. The intent is that awards will support activities to be completed before the 2020 ALE conference. Grant recipient should submit a conference presentation proposal that highlights the project activities. The proposal may indicate that it is highlighting a project of the ALE mini-grant program, but it must meet all of the standard requirements for ALE conference proposals. Two payments will be made (1) upon acceptance, and (2) upon receipt of an ALE proposal. A final report is requested upon completion of the project or within one year (November 2021).
