ALA | Diversity Research Grant Program

ALA Diversity Research Grants: "ALA Annual Diversity Research Grant Program"

The American Library Association's Office for Diversity is pleased to announce its 2005-2006 'Diversity Research Grants' Call for Proposals.
Grant proposals should address one of the following three topics:

1. Accessibility and Universal Design in Library Services and Resources

2. Diversity and Emerging Literacies in the 21st Century

3. Affects of Diversity Policy Implementation on Institutional Diversity

The ALA Office for Diversity began sponsorship of the Diversity Research Grant program in 2002 to address critical gaps in diversity-related research within library and information science. The Diversity Research Grant consists of a one-time $2000 award for original research and a $500 travel grant to attend and present at ALA Annual Conference. Three grants are awarded each year. The deadline for this year's Diversity Research Grant proposals is April 15th, 2005.
