Each year, the ISA HQ receives a variety of proposals, outside the current ISA funding mechanisms, that ask for project support and make a financial request. During its 2017 meeting in Baltimore, the Governing Council renewed the special project grants program; proposals for funding are accepted from members and sections/regions/caucuses. To be considered, projects must benefit a group of ISA members (i.e., they can’t only go to one institution or a single member or to non-ISA members), and are not eligible for funding by an existing funding mechanism within ISA. The deadline is July 1, 2017. A second proposal deadline will be December, 2017, if there are budgeted funds remaining after the first round.
ISA is pleased to solicit submissions for the 2017-2018 funding cycle. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2017. Submissions should be sent to ISA Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A maximum of $10,000 will be budgeted annually for these projects. Projects will be sent to the Executive Committee and any relevant committees for review and recommendation to the 2017 Governing Council.
A maximum of $50,000 will be budgeted annually for these projects. Projects will be sent to the Executive Committee and any relevant committees for evaluation. After peer review, the Executive Committee will recommend and potentially prioritize the reviewed projects, and then make a recommendation to the 2017 Governing Council regarding funding.
The application deadline for the 2018 Special Project Grants Program is July 1, 2017.
