The KG Talent Development Grant is now available to assist current and past members who are experiencing hardship during these unprecedented times with the cost of renewing their membership, and to assist non-members with joining ATD-LA. ATD-LA President Kavita Gupta has generously donated $2,500 to fund this grant. ATD-LA relies on a strong active membership and is proud to provide the benefits associated with a worldwide talent development organization.
To be eligible for this grant, applicants must be seeking individual membership as stated under “Membership” on www.atdla.org. Applicants whose employers fund their ATD-LA membership or membership renewal are not eligible.
In addition, applicants must meet one of the following criteria:
- Be a current member of ATD-LA whose membership is up for renewal in 2021 and have experienced a job loss or are going through a job transition.
- Be a past member of ATD-LA, whose membership expired between April 1, 2020, and today and have experienced a job loss or are going through a job transition.
- Be a full time student currently enrolled in a certified graduate program in one of the following disciplines: Human Resources, Training, Talent Development and Instructional Design.
- Be a new member interested in joining ATD-LA but are currently experiencing a job loss or going through a job transition.
Should you meet one of the above criteria, you will be eligible to receive a KG Talent Development Grant to solely cover your ATD-LA membership fee. Please write to email@example.com if you are interested in receiving a complimentary one-year membership with ATD-LA.
