Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania libraries and other organizations that provide health information for skills training and career development opportunities. Funding is intended to enhance health information delivery and access. Grants may be used for professional development and educational opportunities. Funding will cover costs of professional development courses/conferences such as registration or speaker fees and travel expenses (airfare, hotel, per diem, etc.).

This grant program supports the mission of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, to advance the progress of medicine, and improve the public health by providing all U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving the public's access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health.

Funding will be provided to individuals interested in attending professional seminars, conferences, training sessions, and other continuing education opportunities in areas of health science librarianship, e-Science, data management, data curation, evidence-based practice, or related disciplines. Funding can be used to provide a poster or paper on a previously funded NNLM project at a professional conference. Additionally, funding may be provided to network member institutions to host a CE event, workshop, or speaker.
