    The Elsevier Foundation is seeking grant proposals for its Innovative
Libraries in Developing Countries and New Scholars programs. Grant proposals
for the two programs sponsored by Elsevier, a leading global publisher of

by September 15, 2008. The grants will be awarded in December 2008 and
provide one, two and three year awards between US$5,000 to US$50,000 per

    The program for Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries

quality of life in developing countries by improving their ability put
scientific, technical and medical information to work for those who need it.



    The New Scholars (http://www.elsevierfoundation.org/scholar.html) program
helps the academic and research communities create model programs to help
scholars in the early stages of their careers balance childcare and family
responsibilities with the demanding academic careers in science, health and
technology.

institutions around the world, with a focus on support for the world's
libraries and for scholars in the early stages of their careers. Since its
inception, the Foundation has awarded more than 50 grants worth over a
million dollars to non-profit organizations working in these fields. Through
gift-matching, the Foundation also supports the efforts of Elsevier employees
to play a positive role in their local and global communities.
