Ideally, this should include: how the project will contribute towards advancing print scholarship; a list of speakers and their affiliations (if applicable); anticipated target audience; and how the project will facilitate collaboration between members of the print community, and/or between the print community and the general public. In addition, this narrative should address the feasibility of realizing this project within the proposed time frame (500-1000 words).

*The APS Collaboration Grant does not fund overhead or indirect costs. Indirect costs are costs for activities or services that support the organization as a whole, such as administrative costs not associated with the delivery of the grantee’s particular program or project services. Please note that funds awarded from the grant may only be applied to direct costs outlined in the submitted proposal budget. Acceptable project expenses and direct costs may include, but are not limited to, the following: professional fees/honoraria; travel and lodging expenses; supplies and materials; meetings and conference costs (i.e. space rental fees, etc.). Food or beverage expenses for receptions and dinners/lunches are excluded.

 

*COVID Addendum (2022): Due to the special circumstances of this grant cycle overlapping with the COVID-19 pandemic, projects and events may occur as much as 18 months after receipt of award (through the end of 2023). We also welcome digitally based projects, including but not limited to webinars.
