Give a Bookseller a Lift Travel Grants
GABAL Grants are awarded to booksellers across our region to help with travel expenses attending MPIBA Programs. Coming up next: SpringCon 2020 in Texas and in Colorado.
To qualify for a GABAL Travel Grant you must currently work for an MPIBA member bookstore in good standing that is located more than 50 miles from the event location. Please only apply if you are able to travel to the event, and if applicable, have permission from your store owner or manager to attend the program. Travel Grant winners will be drawn randomly from all qualified applicants and will be contacted in advance of the program. Recipients will not be eligible to receive another Travel Grant for five years.
