The Trustees of the ICA Fund for International Archival Development (FIDA) invite members, branches and other bodies to submit proposals for ICA support for archival projects for 2013.
All documents are attached, scroll down to consult them or to download them.
We encourage applications which contribute to the development of archives and archivists (not just national ones) in developing countries in particular.
To aid this process the Trustees will expect applicants to have read the Guidelines for candidates and have referred to and, where appropriate, to have assessed themselves using the PARBICA self-assessment checklist as a guide and to explain in their application what they want to develop and how they intend to do it. Other archives will need to do their own self-assessment similarly.
The ICA secretariat will be able to advise on likely partners and specialists, if these are required, and on any other matter relating to the Awards. The maximum amount available for each project is up to 10,000 Euros.
Applications must be sent before 16 June 2013.
Applications received will be reviewed by the FIDA Trustees until the end of August.
The results will be published by mid October 2013.
FIDA application forms and support documents are attached below in English and in Spanish.
