Diversity Research Grants

Diversity Research
Wednesday, April 15, 2020

The American Library Association (ALA) Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS) seeks proposals for the Diversity Research Grant program. Applications may address any diversity-related topic which addresses critical gaps in the knowledge of diversity, equity and outreach issues within library and information science.

The Diversity Research Grant consists of a one-time $2,500 award for original research. A jury of ALA members will evaluate proposals and select up to three recipients; the grant recipients will be announced before the 2020 ALA Annual Conference.

Proposals are currently being accepted for one-year research projects that will be undertaken July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Grants should not be sought for work leading toward the completion of a degree, thesis or dissertation.

The primary contact for the grant must be a current member of the American Library Association, but not all researchers are required to hold membership.
