Conference Accelerator Grants are designed for master’s and PhD students who haven’t advanced to candidacy. These grants provide up to $2,000 to “accelerate” the work of developing a paper into a conference presentation by freeing time and supporting relevant expenses.
These awards provide access to other IHS opportunities including job market support, in-person and online events, and much more.
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Applicants will be notified of their award within six weeks of submission.
Awardees are expected to submit proof of academic conference participation within six months of receiving the awarded funds.
- Applicants must be full-time students in an MA or PhD program.
- Previous applicants and winners are welcome to apply; students can receive up to three concurrent Accelerator Grants.
- Prior participation in IHS programs is not required.
- This award is available to students at any university. International students are eligible; however, priority is given to applicants at top research institutions.
Preference will be given to research directly tied to IHS areas of focus.
IHS grants cannot support institutional overhead or indirect costs
