Well, you may think this is a bit early, but it is time to start thinking through how these grants might fulfil something that really would make a difference to your library clients, or your fellow librarians.
INASPs Small Grants come in two sizes: up to 2,ooo USD and up to 10,000 USD. The deadline for proposals in both categories is 30th June, 2012.
2000 USD might go towards “development of activities such as institutional/national training, peer experience exchange visits, mentoring, skills transfer and case studies.”
10,000 USD needs to be innovative, sustainable and provide solutions to “supporting research or access” on a national or regional level.
More information is available here. Note there is a lot of competition for these grants and the words “up to” have great significance.
