Instructions - Workshop/Seminars

WORKSHOP/SEMINAR Application Guidelines

Workshops and seminars take myriad forms: some focus on scholars’ works in progress, others serve as speaker series for innovative work. The workshops and seminars should be free and open to the public. 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: One (1) Year with the possibility of funding for a second year

Award Amount: Up to $10,000. Funding can cover travel and lodging, workshop materials and publicity, 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.
