Innovation in Libraries Awesome Foundation Grant Awards $1000 Every Month

Each month, Library Pipeline’s Innovation Committee will give $1000 to a project that suggests creative solutions, proposes a new way of thinking about library services, and supports underserved and diverse communities.

The Innovation in Libraries Awesome Foundation chapter accepts grant proposals for both technical and non-technical library innovations that embody the principles of diversity, inclusivity, creativity, and risk-taking. For more information, visit the Awesome Foundation website or check out our funding criteria. To apply, submit your application on the Awesome Foundation website.

Grant applications are due by the 15th of each month, with awardees announced by the 1st of the following month.

If you have an awesome library project that fits within their criteria, they want your application!

"Award recipients will be asked to report back publicly on what worked, what didn’t, and what they learned – as well as to make the results of their efforts openly available to others to reuse in communities across the world."
