VRAF Project Grant Opportunity

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Deadline:  October 30, 2013 

The Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF) announces the deadline for its next round of Project Grants.  This program provides support for projects in the field of visual resources and image management that are consonant with the VRA Foundation mission.

Two grants are available in the fall 2013 cycle with up to $1,500 to be awarded per grant. The funds may be used for stand-alone projects, pilots or start-up financing for larger projects, or for a significant component of a larger project. Collaborative projects and those proposed by groups, whether or not affiliated with an organization or institution, are encouraged. Of particular interest are innovative projects with results that can have broad impact and be shared with the global community. Categories to be considered for funding would include, but not necessarily be limited to, the following: 

  • Image Cataloging and Metadata
  • Data Standards 
  • Digital Archives
  • Digitization Projects of Special and/or Unique Collections (Educational Institutions, Libraries, Museums)
  • Visual Literacy
  • Pedagogy and Technology
  • Intellectual Property Rights

The Foundation reviews and selects projects for funding in the fall.  The exact dates are published with each request for proposals.  The deadline for the fall 2013 review is October 30, 2013.  Awards will be announced by December 11, 2013.

The VRA Foundation has United States Internal Revenue Service status as a 501c3 non-profit entity. All elements of a proposed project must be performed within the legal parameters of United States local, regional, and federal government requirements. International applications are welcome from institutions or individuals provided applicant institutions have the equivalent of US non-profit status, and applicant individuals have a similar non-profit, educational purpose.
