Call for Workshop and Seminar Proposals for FY2018 Funding
The Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy is pleased to issue its annual request for workshop and seminar proposals. The goal of ISERP workshop and seminar support is to bring together scholars from within and across disciplines to focus on matters of common interest. ISERP-sponsored workshops and seminars take myriad forms: some focus on scholars’ works in progress, others serve as speaker series for innovative work. All ISERP workshops and seminars are free and open to the public. We invite proposals for new workshops or seminars for the 2017-18 academic year.
Proposals will be evaluated on their intellectual merit and coherence, and their judicious use of funding. Workshops and seminars may focus on a specific topic, on basic social science inquiry, or on a set of intellectual issues. We encourage workshops and seminars that are collaborative and interdisciplinary, and those that provide structured opportunity for graduate student training and development.
Workshops and Seminars that are collaborative and involve faculty from more than one discipline will be given special consideration.
Faculty, research scholars, and research scientists at Columbia University in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences are eligible to apply for ISERP funding for workshops and seminars. At least one applicant per workshop or seminar team must be a full-time faculty member.
Applicants should submit:
- A 3-page proposal that describes the proposed workshop or seminar, its mission, its structure and organization, and a plan for its first year.
- A detailed budget and budget justification.
- Proposals should be submitted electronically as a single PDF document to ISERP
Duration: Two (2) Years
Award Amount: Up to $10,000. Funding can cover travel and lodging, honoraria, workshop refreshments or meals, and a small stipend for a graduate student coordinator. We strongly recommend that your proposal be accessible to scholars beyond your immediate field.
Application Deadline: March 31, 2017
Start Date: July 1, 2017
