ISA's Research Grants

Our Research Workshop Grant Program

ISA’s Research and Workshop Grant program was created in 1992 to support and advance workshops. In 2007, the Governing Council substantially expanded and restructured the Workshop Grant Program, more than doubling the total amount of funds available. Today, the Workshops Grant Program is a vibrant part of ISA’s support structure for the advancement of knowledge within the international studies community.

Types of Research Workshop Grants

Venture Research Grants

Venture Research Grants provide support to innovative and pioneering research. These grants allow for the pursuit of potentially transformative research areas, or to engage in preliminary work on untested or novel areas of research.

Venture Research Grants are worth up to $25,000.

Catalytic Research Grants

Catalytic Research Grants support projects that apply new expertise or new approaches to established research topics, and as a result, are likely to catalyze rapid and innovative advances in that area.

Catalytic Research Workshop Grants are worth up to $10,000.

Submissions Closed

Research Workshop Grant Submissions for the ISA 2017 Annual Convention have now passed. Workshop recipients have received notification of their acceptance.
