Note to previous grantees and current grant holders:

If you and/or your project participants currently hold a grant with us, or have held a grant with us before, and you want to apply for further funding, you need to ensure that your and/or your project participants' documentation collection is in the process of being deposited or has been deposited with our archive, ELAR. The status of your deposit will be part of the evaluation of your current application. A completed collection or ongoing depositing process will be of advantage in the evaluation. ELDP will not make a formal offer until other projects supported by us have been completed or are in the process of completion. Contact us ( about the status of your and/or project participants’ deposit of the previous or current grant or if you have any further questions regarding this regulation.
