Apply Now for a 2020-2021 NNLM PSR Funding Award!

Posted by on February 27th, 2020 Posted in: Advocacy, Announcements, Funding, Outreach


We are pleased to announce the availability of the Call for Applications (CFA) for our popular Express Outreach Award funding program for 2020–2021! CFAs have also been issued for NNLM PSR Outreach Mini-Awards and Professional Development Awards. Funding opportunities for All of Us awards will be announced in April. Complete details for the awards, including the number available, maximum funding amount, potential projects, and application instructions for the new online applications accessed on and submitted through the website, are available on the NNLM PSR web site. Proposals submitted by Friday, April 10 will receive priority consideration.

After April 10, applications will continue to be accepted and reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis, until all award funds are allocated. All NNLM PSR Network members are eligible to apply for any of the awards. Project activities and professional development events must be conducted between May 1, 2020, and April 30, 2021. No extensions beyond 4/30/21 will be possible since this is the last year of the current five-year NNLM funding cycle. Funding will be distributed on a cost-reimbursement basis. Award recipients are required to submit activity reports, professional development evaluation reports, and final project reports, as applicable. Upon completion of projects or events, all award recipients are expected to submit an article for the NNLM PSR Latitudes newsletter blog, with highlights of the experiences and lessons learned.

Express Outreach Awards are designed to increase awareness of health information resources by health professionals, consumers, public health professionals, and minority health practitioners. Outreach Mini-Awards are designed to support smaller projects, such as NLM traveling exhibition programming or one-day events such as health fairs. Both awards have the ultimate goal of promoting knowledge of and access to National Library of Medicine resources for healthcare providers and consumers. Professional Development Awards are designed to support individuals wishing to improve skills by attending professional conferences, workshops, and other educational opportunities in areas of health sciences librarianship or related disciplines.

To find out about further award details, new online application procedures, and hear highlights of previously awarded projects, please register to join us for an informational funding webinar on March 11 at 1:00 PM PDT! Also available is the NNLM PSR Funding Guide, designed to answer questions about the entire award process, from application to final reporting. And remember that RML staff members are available to answer questions about the awards, or to discuss potential project ideas. We look forward to seeing your proposals!
