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.
