Date:6/24/2008

NEW YORK, June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

- Awards Target Researchers in Developing Countries and Academic Workplace

The Elsevier Foundation is seeking grant proposals for its Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries and New Scholars programs. Grant proposals for the two programs sponsored by Elsevier, a leading global publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, are due by September 15, 2008. The grants will be awarded in December 2008 and provide one, two and three year awards between US$5,000 to US$50,000 per year.

The program for Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries (http://www.elsevierfoundation.org/library.html) helps libraries enhance the quality of life in developing countries by improving their ability put scientific, technical and medical information to work for those who need it.

The New Scholars (http://www.elsevierfoundation.org/scholar.html) program helps the academic and research communities create model programs to help scholars in the early stages of their careers balance childcare and family responsibilities with the demanding academic careers in science, health and technology.

Active since 2002, the Elsevier Foundation provides grants to institutions around the world, with a focus on support for the world's libraries and for scholars in the early stages of their careers. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than 50 grants worth over a million dollars to non-profit organizations working in these fields. Through gift-matching, the Foundation also supports the efforts of Elsevier employees to play a positive role in their local and global communities.

For more information on the program requirements and details of how to submit a proposal please visit http://www.elsevierfoundation.org/index.html .
