Continuing Education: Financial Assistance

Providing continuing education and training courses to library staff and trustees throughout South Carolina

Financial Assistance

The South Carolina State Library makes financial assistance to pursue learning opportunities available in two formats: 

  • Tuition Assistance Grants. These are available in limited amounts for each semester. 
  • Continuing Education Grants. Application is open for CE opportunities including conference attendance. Typical awards are $750 for in-state conferences/classes and $1000 for out-of-state conferences/classes, and $500 for an online course. Additional funding is set aside for the Collaborative Summer Library Program annual meeting and extra responsibilities.
