Grant Details

  • Deadline: January 28, 2011
  • Amount: up to $25,000; up to $12,500 for workshops

The American Council of Learned Societies offers grants of up to $25,000 for the organization of conferences and up to $12,500 for the organization of workshops to be held between June 1, 2011 and December 31, 2012.

These grants will support academic conferences and workshops for the presentation and critical evaluation of new research on Eastern Europe.

Conferences are formal events and should be open to the public.  Conference papers should be of publishable quality, pointing new directions for scholarship.

Workshops are conceived as smaller events at which scholars discuss work in progress less formally with the intention of developing collaborations and planning conferences.  A workshop should hold at least one public session such as a panel of paper presentations, a roundtable, or a lecture with discussion.

Applications must specify a principal organizer who is affiliated with a university or research institution and who must hold a Ph.D. Organizers must be citizens of the United States.
