LSTA 2008 Letter Template and Internal Deadlines
We've posted a template for the letter of intent for the upcoming LSTA grants for 2008 here: http://www.library.uiuc.edu/iris/grants_blog/lsta.html These letters are due to LSTA on April 2, 2007. Please note the Library's internal timeline/deadlines for this grant:
1. April 12: Copies of letters of intent go to Bill Mischo. Bill Mischo and Susan Harum will review the letters of intent and contact PI's regarding potential resource issues, and about their intent to go forward with proposals. If there is more than one large proposal in any one category, Susan H. will contact LSTA program manager and determine whether we need to limit submissions per category.
2. Apr. 12-April 23: PI's develop proposals, working with Bill Mischo or Susan Harum for RFP questions and Kathie Veach for budget questions. PI's must make appointments to meet with Kathie to work on budget questions.
3. April 23: Final narrative and budget, with completed application forms are due to Bill Mischo and Kathie Veach. PI's may be contacted for follow-up review after that date, and need to make themselves available for consultation and to sign the final transmittal sheet and any other required forms prior to grant submission. The LBO will handle delivery of the proposals to the Illinois State library and will determine when and how they are to be delivered by the May 11 deadline.
