Apply now for grants supporting the use of Research4Life in low-income countries
The Medical Library Association (MLA) has opened the call for applications for the MLA Librarians without Borders® / Elsevier Foundation/ Research4Life Grants. Applications will be open until 1 December 2019.
Funded by the Elsevier Foundation, the grants support training activities that promote the use of the scientific resources available in Research4Life in low-income countries. Grants range from USD 1,500 to USD 5,000 and are distributed in June following the MLA annual meeting. The project should be completed by 31 December 2021. Individuals/institutions involved in any aspect of the Research4Life programme are encouraged to apply.
Some example projects to get inspired include: increasing mechanisms for promoting the Research4Life programs and their training resources, conducting workshops at you institution, or organizing an online course on Research4Life targeting specific audiences.
