Mini-Grants to Help Front-Line Persons Purchase Academic Publications

In development, planned to launch in late 2019

  • These grants are intended for front-line persons associated with organizations who need to purchase academic publications that are:
    1. behind publishers’ paywalls
    2. of significant value for understanding one or more “burning questions”
  • Applicants must:
    1. list the publications they need to purchase
    2. explain briefly how these materials help to deepen their understanding of one or more burning question(s)
    3. list how they will share what they learn from the publications
  • Grants are given to organizations, not private individuals.
  • Front-line persons from organizations in all countries can apply for these grants.
  • Each grant’s minimum is $300 and maximum is $1,200. Applications can be made multiple times each year, but the total amount of grants requested by an applicant in a 12-month period cannot exceed $1,200 unless in exceptional circumstances.
  • The grants are offered year-round with no deadline.
