Professional Development Grant

About the Professional Development Grants

KC IABC has professional development grants available to members. Grants are available to individuals who have maintained a minimum of three consecutive years of KC IABC membership and who have not received a grant from KC IABC within the last five years. The maximum grant that can be awarded is $500 per person.

A committee composed of the past president, president and VP of Finance and Administration will review the applications. The application is then approved by a majority vote of the executive committee.
