Public Library Innovation Program
International Grants » Grants for Developing and Transitioning Countries
The new eIFL.net Public Library Innovation Program seeks to spark the development of innovative public library services with and for their communities.
This first Call is designed to gather great ideas that introduce technology to meet user needs and help people improve their lives.
This program is supported by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
eIFL.net invite public libraries or other organizations in developing and transitioning countries to submit proposals to develop innovative services for and by public libraries.
A maximum of 10 best proposals will be awarded up to $30,000 USD each for a 1 year project to implement the service in support of community needs.
The call is open to public libraries.
Other organizations can apply in partnership with the public library to develop innovative services for and by the public library.
The program will cover all project-related expenses except construction or reconstruction costs, or expenses incurred before the grant agreement is signed.
Funds for collection development (print and/or e-resources) can be requested if related directly to the project goals.
