Elsevier Foundation Invites Grant Proposals for Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries Program

The New York City-based Elsevier Foundation, the philanthropic arm of scientific and medical publisher Elsevier, is seeking new grant proposals for its 2011 Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries program. The foundation supports the efforts of libraries to enhance the quality of life in developing countries by advancing knowledge in science, the social sciences, technology, and medicine (STM).

The foundation provides grants to libraries and supporting organizations in developing countries for the following: programs to enhance library infrastructure, technology, or information services in ways that significantly expand their ability to make STM information available to those who need it — researchers, clinicians, students, policy makers, and the wider public; programs that expand library information resources in the developing world through digitization or preservation of information that advances science, health, the environment, and indigenous knowledge; training and education programs for library staff, students, or researchers, contributing to sustainable improvements in the library's capacity to provide STM information in the developing world; and partnerships between libraries in developing countries and institutions in developed countries to provide technical assistance or training (developed country partner organizations include libraries, learned societies, universities, intergovernmental organizations, and other nonprofit organizations).

Grants will provide one-, two-, and three-year awards of between $5,000 and $50,000 per year. Requests for hardware will only be considered if they are part of a comprehensive project approach integrating diverse elements such as training or research. Grants are awarded for specific projects rather than operating support.

Applications will be accepted online from July 1, 2011, through September 15, 2001.

Visit the Elsevier Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information on previously funded grants.

Application Guidelines

The Human Rights and Governance Grants Program supports more than 100 human rights–related organizations across Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union and Mongolia from its Human Rights Fund.

The mission of the Human Rights Fund is to ensure that there is at least one mainstream human rights advocacy NGO in each state of the region, capable of alerting the public to, and promoting government accountability for, human rights abuses through monitoring, litigation, and advocacy. Where such organizations exist, the fund provides both institutional and project support. In countries where national organizations do not exist, the Human Rights and Governance Grants Program takes a proactive approach to identifying partner organizations with which to cooperate on rights-related monitoring and litigation on the ground.

The fund supports organizations promoting political and civil rights at the local, national, or regional level. It also provides funding to several international organizations working in the region. Funding is principally targeted towards groups working on fundamental rights issues. The program also funds a number of specialized organizations working in critical areas such as the rights of Roma; detainees; women; the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community; and people with mental disabilities.

The program is one of the few sources in the region providing core institutional funding, which provides organizations with the flexibility to develop programming in line with their own strategic objectives, rather than in response to donor-driven priorities. The program is also one of the few grantors providing support for litigation to promote accountability.

In 2008, the Human Rights and Governance Grants Program introduced an additional element to its human rights–related grantmaking by identifying gaps in rights protection in the region and designing proactive funding strategies to address them. As a result, a new program on women’s rights is in place, as is a program on penal reform and the rights of detainees.
