Do you know of a workshop you'd like to attend, but cannot fund on your own? Would you like to present a paper at a conference, but your institution cannot cover your registration and expenses? These are only a few examples of the many ways NEA can help you with your professional development.
Apply for the Hale Award to receive the funding you need to push your archival career forward.
