The MAC Research & Assessment Committee provides grant funding for research projects that promote and stimulate excellence in the field of health science librarianship and health sciences librarianship. If you have an idea for a research project in health librarianship our committee invites you to apply for a Research and Assessment Grant.
Amount of the Grant: $2000 in any one year with the potential for more funding with MAC Board approval.
- Grants may be used to support all or part of the costs of a project, up to a maximum of $2000. MAC/MLA may award more than one grant in a year for a maximum of $2000 in any one year. There is the potential for an increase in this funding in any one year but would require a detailed budget and approval not only of the MAC Research and Assessment Committee but also MAC Executive Board.
Due Date for Applications: The grant(s) will be awarded at the Annual MAC Meeting. Applications are due on Tuesday August 31, 2021.
