Network members in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington still have time to put on your thinking caps about innovative projects for which you need funding. We have a new suite of funding opportunities to inspire outreach in your communities or new projects within your organizations. Deadline to submit an intent to apply is August 1, 2013. Read on for more details.
In this round, we are offering a new award — the Health Disparities Information Outreach Award — for up to $5,000 to support activities that increase awareness of health disparities and the National Library of Medicine’s resources.
Other award options include Express Outreach Awards, with emphasis this time on outreach to the Public Health workforce and/or health professionals. Express Outreach Awards are funded at up to $15,000.
For projects that focus on emerging or innovative roles for information professionals, consider a Medical Library Pilot Project Award, funded up to $15,000. Or, maybe a Health Information Services Award is just the ticket, funded up to $5,000, to support projects that promote the value of health information services within an organization or for the community.
For each award, proposals will be accepted until August 30, 2013. However, if you plan to submit an application, we need a brief statement of intent no later than August 1, 2013 to help our planning process. Please submit your statement of intent to apply to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also offer ongoing funding (ranging from $500 to $2,000) to support costs for professional development, assessment and planning, training, and exhibit activities. These ongoing awards are available until funds are expended.
We look forward to hearing your ideas and receiving some great proposals! And, as always, if you have questions, NN/LM PNR staff are here to help.
