One Million Dollars for Your Library 2010

Does your library "provide free public access to information through the use of computers and the Internet"? If so, you may want to apply for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s annual Access to Learning Award (ATLA), which gives US$1 million to the awardee. Previous winners include libraries from Colombia, Mexico and Nepal.

Please note that "organizations [not just libraries] that reach out to underserved groups, such as poor or disabled patrons, or those from minority communities" are encouraged to apply, that the award is given to "recognize services that are currently being provided" (i.e., not for proposed projects or activities) and that the deadline is 31 October 2009.

A grant writing workshop specifically designed for those who intend to apply for the ATLA will be held at the Ortigas Foundation Library, 10 September 2009, 9:30am–5:00pm. John Silva will conduct the workshop. Registration fee is P7,500.
