Elsevier Foundation is calling for proposals for Innovative Libraries and New Scholars Programmes
The Elsevier Foundation, a philanthropic organisation sponsored by Elsevier, a global publisher of scientific, technical, and medical information, is seeking new grant proposals for its 2009 Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries and New Scholars programmes. The two programmes will provide one-, two-, and three-year grants of up to US$50,000 a year.
The Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries programme supports the efforts of libraries in developing countries working to make scientific, technical, and medical information available to those who need it. Past projects have included expanding library information resources through digitization and knowledge preservation, training and education programs for librarians and researchers, and developed/developing world partnerships to provide long-term technical assistance and training.
The New Scholars program supports academic and research communities working to help scholars in the early stages of their science, health, and technology careers balance work and family responsibilities. Previous grants have promoted institutional research, advocacy, and policy development to retain, recruit, and develop women in science, and have enabled researchers to attend conferences critical to their careers by assisting with childcare, mentorship, and networking.
Deadline: 1 August 2009
