FIDA Call for Projects 2022 - Building Capacity and Supporting the Archives

You still have one month to submit proposals for ICA/FIDA support for archival projects!  

The role of the ICA Fund for the International Development of Archives (FIDA) is to support the development of archives and archivists across the world. In particular FIDA wishes to help to build capacity in countries where archive and records management is under resourced, and, through career development, mentoring and other methods, enable archives and their archivists to acquire professional and management competencies needed to occupy leadership positions in their regions and countries.   

The maximum amount available for each project is up to 10,000 euros and awards normally do not exceed 7,000 euros. 

You must be a member in good standing to be eligible for funding. To find out how to join the ICA, visit our page here:
