Are you a graduate student or faculty member looking to fund your next academic event?

Graduate students and faculty can request funds for hosting in-person and online events, such as research workshops or academic conferences. Research workshops include exclusive access to our IHS Digital Community, a self-organizing digital solution to support you in running a successful event.

Events may take place either in person or online but must be rigorously academic in nature and feature speakers or texts that represent the diversity of views within the broad liberal tradition

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and must be submitted at least three weeks prior to the proposed event. For events that are run through the IHS Digital Community, decisions will be announced within two weeks of submission. All other event decisions will be announced within eight weeks of submission.

Eligible Events & Expenses

  • Book manuscript, single paper, and multiple paper workshops (honoraria for participants)
    • Awards of up to $5,000 for reviewer honoraria
      • Honoraria of $500 for paper-length manuscripts
      • Honoraria of $750 for book-length manuscripts
    • Workshops to include 2–10 reviewers
  • Academic conferences 
    • Note: If you wish to be considered for funding to support the expense of presenting at an academic conference, please apply to Expense Support

Ineligible Expenses

Preference will be given to events which deal with the IHS areas of focus.
