The Innovative Libraries in Developing Countries program provides grants to libraries in the developing world to improve access to scientific, technical and medical information. The 2013 program priorities include: professional librarian training enabling librarians to serve as pivotal advocates in their research ecosystems and projects which demonstrate the link between research access, training, usage and health impact. Priorities will also include projects which demonstrate a strong outcomes evaluation and have the potential for a strong model or multiplier effect.The New Scholars Program supports projects to help early- to mid-career women scientists balance family responsibilities with demanding academic careers and addresses the attrition rate of talented women scientists. Recent grants have promoted institutional research, advocacy, and policy development to retain, recruit and develop women in science and have enabled researchers to attend conferences critical to their careers by assisting with childcare, mentorship and networking. Since 2010, the New Scholars program has also focused on the developing world through support of recognition awards and national gender-benchmarking research mapping the opportunities and obstacles faced by women in science, technology and innovation.
