Digitizing Hidden Special Collections and Archives: Amplifying Unheard Voices- CLIR
Deadline: April 30, 2021
Award Amount: $50,000 - $350,000
This program invite proposals to digitize materials that deepen public understanding of the histories of people of color and other communities and populations whose work, experiences, and perspectives have been insufficiently recognized or unattended. By funding a cohort of academic, independent, and community-based organizations to digitize now-unavailable or underutilized collections, CLIR will cultivate broad recognition of the value of creating access to resources that document historically marginalized people to the advancement of social justice. Some adjustments will be made to the program’s guidelines and operations. Changes of note include:
Research Grant- Reducing Inequality– William T. Grant Foundation
Deadline: May 5, 2021
Award Amount: $100,000 to $600,000 for two to three years
The sponsor supports research that increases understanding in one of two focus areas:
1) programs, policies, and practices that reduce inequality in youth (ages 5-25) outcomes, and
2) strategies to improve the use of research evidence in ways that benefit youth.
Grants for Libraries – Gladys Brooks Foundation
Deadline: May 31, 2021
Award Amount: Unspecified amount; previous awards range from $5,000 to $150,000
Grant applications will be considered generally for resource Endowments (print, film, electronic database, speakers/workshops), capital construction and innovative equipment. Projects fostering broader public access to global information sources utilizing collaborative efforts, pioneering technologies and equipment are encouraged.
These checklists provide transparency, workflows, and identify responsible parties involved in the three major activities of grants management at the Smathers Libraries: determining feasibility, preparing and submitting proposals, and managing award setup and post award processes.
Each month, a Funding Alert is published to highlight upcoming funding opportunities and deadlines related to the interests of personnel at the George A. Smathers Libraries. The document features deadlines, summaries of sponsor interest and eligibility requirements, as well as ranges of funding amounts, a link to the guidelines, and a link to previously awarded grants if this is available.
The Grants Activities Update is a monthly report produced by the Smathers Libraries, Grants Management Program, to inform Libraries employees about activities related to grantseeking. Proposals are categorized by whether they have been recently submitted, recently awarded, recently declined, pending, or active. The purpose of the report is to provide sufficient information about the status of all proposals for the purpose of transparency and tracking. Information includes title of the project, amount requested, amount contributed as cost share, proposal abstract, project team members, start dates and end dates, the related sponsors name and program, and a link to the full proposal hosted in the UF Institutional Repository, an open access repository.
