Requesting Funds from the Learning & Development (L&D) Budget (history)

Apply by March 1, 2023 Application survey link.

Each year ANR Learning & Development (L&D) funds trainings, workshops, classes, and online learning resources for ANR employees. The call for funds requests from Learning & Development is open ANRwide. 

We recognize that we have a talented and knowledgeable employee base and that many of our colleagues continually step up to facilitate internal professional development opportunities. Therefore, we would like to know what learning opportunities you might like to organize for our colleagues and what funding level you would need. 

Due to limited funds, not all requests will be filled, and some may be filled at a lower amount than requested. It may take up to several months to receive notice of L&D budget decisions – and it is not unlikely it could take until summer of 2023 to receive your decision letter.
