UCHRI Conference Grant, 2019-2020

Application Deadline: Monday, December 3rd, 2018

Sponsored by: UC Humanities Research Institute

Only Ladder Rank Faculty are eligible for this grant.

Conference Grants provide matching funds to support events that convene scholars (primarily UC faculty) to explore significant and innovative ideas around a particular research topic, being particularly responsive to those intellectual activities that cannot readily occur within existing departmental and programmatic structures. Although the conference model is one such means of engaging in these activities, UCHRI invites interested applicants to consider alternative forms of scholarly gatherings, especially those that result in conversations and projects that have scholarly outcomes beyond the event. This grant is not intended to support annual meetings of professional organizations and groups or ongoing scholarly gatherings, and applicants must seek funding from outside granting agencies or organizations to secure a match of at least 50% of UCHRI-awarded funds.

Eligible Applicants: UC Ladder Rank Faculty

Maximum Award: Up to $5,000 (at least 50% of awarded funds must be matched)

Awards announced (expected): January 2019

See website for required documents.
