Upcoming Application Deadline for the InULA Research Incentive Fund

The InULA Research Incentive Fund is intended to encourage and support research by providing funding for research projects of any size or scope.  All applications will be considered on their merits.  In the case of equally meritorious proposals, those of the non-tenured librarians may be given priority, because it is often difficult for beginning researchers to obtain research grants.  The guidelines, application, and other information may be found at: http:///

Applications for InULA Research Incentive funds to support research, professional development, or service are due on January 15.  Applications are reviewed after the deadline by the InULA Grants and Scholarship Committee and recommendations made to the Executive Board for approval and funding.  Notice of awards is provided to the applicants as soon as possible.
