The Game On! Grant

Applications for the 2022 Game On! Grant are open.

Every year ALA GameRT offers a grant to support gaming in libraries. We award either one grant of $500.00, or two grants of $250.00 each. The application period ends on March 1st and the winner is announced at ALA play, either in person or virtually.


  • Applicants must be a member of ALA, personal or organizational.
  • Applicants must be employed with a public, school, academic, or special library.
  • No library should receive the Game On! Grant more than two times in a five year period.
  • Institutions represented by the Game On! Grant Jury are eligible to apply, but Committee members must recuse themselves from the discussion and voting or decline the nomination if they have a conflict of interest.

The application is easy!
