Each year the IFLA Professional Committee (PC) administers a fund for sponsoring projects undertaken by IFLA Professional Units and corresponding with IFLA’s Key Initiatives. In 2013 the project allocations comprised about 80% of the PC’s overall budget and funded 16 projects. It usually funds between 10 – 20 projects, either fully, or partly, with an average amount of between 2000-2500 Euros.

The PC has now issued call for applications from the professional units for project funds for 2014.

The call documentation includes details of what is eligible, and an application form, which should be completed online. The deadline for submitting an application is 31 October 2013. All applications should have the approval of the Standing Committee of the relevant Section and should be discussed with the relevant Division Chair.
