June 17 is the deadline for one-page proposals on gender equality in academia and building research capacity in developing country libraries

The Elsevier Foundation is seeking grant proposals for the 2014 New Scholars and Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries programs. Grants focus on developing country libraries and scholars in the early stages of their careers.

The deadline for applications is June 17. Grants, to be awarded in December, will provide one-, two- and three-year awards of between $5,000 and $50,000 a year for a total of $100,000.

Forty shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit full proposals by September 3rd.

“This year, as we look for projects to advance women in science and build capacity in libraries in low- and middle-income countries, we will search for even stronger outcome and impact evaluation,” said David Ruth, Executive Director of the Elsevier Foundation. “Because our grants often provide that first proof-of-concept funding, projects should serve as compelling models offering strong multiplier effects.”
