FIDA | 4 April 2017

The Trustees of the ICA Fund for the International Development of Archives (FIDA) invite members, branches and other bodies to submit proposals for ICA/FIDA support for archival projects for 2017.


All documents are attached, scroll down to consult them or to download them.

Individual applications can also be submitted online via this form : INDIVIDUAL APPLICATION


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 self-assessment checklist as a guide and to explain in their application what they want to develop and how they intend to do it.

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.

Call for applications extended to 1st September 2017.

Applications received will be reviewed by the FIDA Trustees. The final decision will be taken at the meeting of the Board of Trustees at the time of the ICA Annual Conference.


FIDA application forms (for individuals or for groups/institutions) and support documents are attached below in English, French and Spanish.
