Professional Projects and Funding

Each year, the IFLA Professional Committee approves the funding of a number of projects proposed by the IFLA Professional Units. Project Funds are intended to pay for Action Plan projects approved by the Professional Committee, aligned to IFLA Strategic Goals, and proposed by the Professional Units - Section Standing Committee or Special Interest Groups.

Funding guidelines are reviewed each December for the following year.
