The VRA Foundation is initiating a Project Grant program. The purpose of the VRA Foundation’s Project Grant is to provide support for projects in the field of visual resources and image management that are consonant with the VRA Foundation mission. Up to $1,500 will be awarded per grant. The funds may be used for small, stand-alone projects, pilots or start-up financing for larger projects, or for a component of a larger project. Collaborative projects and those proposed by groups, whether or not affiliated with an organization or institution, are favored. Categories to be considered for funding would include, but not necessarily be limited to, the following:
• Image Metadata
• Image Cataloguing
• Data Standards
• Digital Archives
• Digitization Projects (Educational Institutions, Libraries, Museums)
• Visual Literacy
• Pedagogy and Technology
• Intellectual Property Rights
Project proposals may be submitted at any time during the year. The Foundation reviews and selects projects for funding twice a year, in April and November. The deadline for April review is March 31. The deadline for November review is October 31.
