Suggested vocabulary change
Addition of a new activity type vocabulary term ‘grant’.

The current Activity Type vocabulary which is copied directly from the ISO2146 standard is -
    award: something given to recognize excellence in a certain field (not used)
    course: education imparted in a series of lessons or meetings (not used)
    event: something that happens at a particular place or time as an organized activity with participants or an audience (not used)
    program: system of activities intended to meet a public need (234 contributed records)
    project: piece of work that is undertaken or attempted, with a start and end date and defined objectives (1728 contributed records)

This proposal is for an additional vocabulary term. The new term and its description would be:
grant: a funding grant awarded to partially or fully fund a research project, research facility, research program, equipment grant, fellowship, traineeship etc
Although there are currently 5 activity records in RDA with the type of ‘award’, this type should not have been used as two are PhD research topics (project), two are fellowship programs (grant), and one a bequest to fund digitisation and maintenance of an archive (grant).
