Call for proposals: GSDI Small Grants Program 2011-2012
The Global Spatial Data Infrastructure (GSDI) Association, the FGDC, and GISCorps have announced the Small Grants Program for the year 2011-12.
The Small Grants Program provides awards of $2500 USD in cash and/or contributed volunteer professional services for a technical or institutional projects. A list of typical projects follows - but this list is not exhaustive:
Convening of national or sub-national seminars or workshops related to SDI
Producing SDI- and EOS-related training manuals and modules (these materials must not duplicate existing materials)
Establishing metadata and clearinghouse nodes (catalog services)
Establishing standards-based web mapping and data access services
Accomplishing geospatial data and/or SDI surveys or inventories
Producing and disseminating newsletters and awareness-raising materials about SDI
Drafting policy and legislation related to SDI
Priority will be given to projects in developing nations and countries with economies in transition. Grants can be awarded to SDI coordinating bodies (councils, committees) and GIS user groups, but the GSDI Association asks that one institution take responsibility for receiving/depositing the funds. Grants cannot be used to cover organization overhead expenses.
Application deadline: 31 October 2011.
