The Leadership grants program invests in projects that address challenges faced by the library and archive fields, and generates results such as new tools, research findings, or models that can be widely used by libraries. Laura Bush grants support human capital capacity projects for libraries and archives.

Both grant programs are open to all types of libraries. Two-page, preliminary proposals are due February 2, 2016.  Selected applicants will then be invited to submit full proposals in June, 2016.
