Their grant application opens in the spring, awards are made in the fall each year. Join our mailing list and we will send a note out in the spring when the application process opens.
Another great way to bring an author/illustrator to your school for a reasonable fee is to check their schedule and see when they will be in your area. Often, they offer special discounts and travel expenses can be split between schools – which can bring the cost down for everyone.
