Call for Applications - First Set of Grants for 2014

We're pleased to announce the first set of AuthorAID small grants for 2014.

Our travel grants are meant for researchers who have an accepted proposal to present at a conference. Our workshop grants are meant for researchers or administrators who would like to organize a workshop on a topic related to research communication.

This time, we plan to award two travel grants ($1500 each) and two workshop grants ($2500 each) following a competitive selection process. The deadline to apply for both grants is 28 February 2014. We will be notifying the grant winners sometime between March 10 and 12, 2014.

Both our travel and workshop grants are open only to people who are citizens of and are working in our partner countries in the developing world. A complete list of eligible countries can be found in the application form.

If you’re interested, please go through the PDF copy of the application form for the relevant grant (links are given below).

Then, when you are ready to apply, please fill out the online application form

Please do not attempt to fill out the PDF copy of the form. Use only the online form to apply.

You should be ready to complete the online application form in a single session, as partial applications cannot be saved. Therefore, before you begin the application, please prepare your responses to the questions that require some thought.

The next set of grants will be announced in June 2014.
