Grants Program 2005
call for applications
IUPAC Internal Deadline 1 Feb 2004
Two years ago ICSU restructured its grants program to
provide a smaller number of larger-size grants, each of which MUST result
from a joint proposal by AT LEAST TWO AND PREFERABLY MORE ICSU bodies.
ICSU has identified particular priority themes, as described in the
attachments. Some are particularly relevant to certain IUPAC programs
[education, sustainable development].
If you contemplate applying for a grant, please contact
your counterparts in other Scientific Unions, national members of ICSU,
or ICSU bodies [e.g., CODATA, SCOPE] as early as possible in order to
develop a strong application.
IUPAC is limited to submitting two applications for the small grant
program [up to $50,000] and two for the large grant program [$50,000
to $100,000] but may also support applications from other Unions. Applications
and supporting statements must be submitted by the IUPAC Secretariat,
not by any individual or IUPAC body. Please communicate with the Secretariat
as early as possible if you anticipate submitting a proposal. Draft
applications must be submitted to the IUPAC Secretariat by FEBRUARY
1, 2004 so there is time for the Secretary General to evaluate their
merits, consult with the Project Committee if necessary, and decide
which applications should be submitted and/or supported by IUPAC before
the ICSU deadline.
