IASA Research Grant Guidelines
IASA regularly offers financial awards to encourage and support research and publication within the field of audiovisual archiving and preservation. In order to be considered for a research grant, the following guidelines apply:
- Research can, but need not, form part of an academic programme.
- The level of financial support will be determined by the IASA Executive Board individually on a case by case basis, but individual awards will not normally exceed Euro 2,000. All costs are eligible if the applicant can show clear justification for them within the scope, aims, and purposes of the project.
- IASA will only consider applications from IASA members whose membership is in good standing at the time of application.
- IASA promotes diversity in the audiovisual archiving field and encourages applications from developing countries.
- IASA will support a research project only if there is evidence that the results are within the scope of IASA’s purposes. This includes, but is not limited to the care of, access to, and long term preservation of sound and audiovisual heritage including the development of best professional standards and practice for sound and audiovisual heritage. See paragraph 2 of the IASA constitution (www.iasa-web.org/iasa-constitution#intro) for an articulation of IASA’s purposes.
- Depending on the scope and the overall duration of a research project, the applicant should arrange appropriately defined project phases. Interim reports should be sent to IASA at the end of each phase. A final report must be submitted no later than two (2) months following the end of the project.
- IASA will issue a research grant on the basis of a written agreement signed by the Secretary-General for the Association.
- The recipient will acknowledge IASA in all papers, presentations, and other publications that reference research supported by IASA.
- IASA will not pay Research Grants in advance of a project
