Submit a 2018 ISA Research & Workshop Grant Proposal

The deadline for proposals is June 30th, 2018.

Submitting a research workshop proposal involves a number of steps. Once you've reviewed all of our guidelines and policies, please download the workshop cover-sheet and budget documents. These will help you prepare your full submission, which is emailed to the committee chair.

1. Before You Begin: Read The Guidelines and Policies

2. Begin Your Proposal Cover-sheet

The cover-sheet provides us with the basic information on your proposal and outlines the documents you need to submit.

3. Begin Your Budget

The budget form helps you outline your expenses.

4. Final Review

Look over your proposal one more time to make sure it includes:

  • Your coversheet
  • Your core proposal (check the Core Proposal Guidelines above)
  • Your budget
  • Your CV
  • Complete references
  • Statements of commitment and biographical sketch for each participant involved

5. Complete and Email

Once your proposal is complete, email the cover-sheet, budget, and all supporting documents as one .pdf document, the Research and Workshop Grants Committee chair.

Prior to the 2014 Toronto Convention, workshop grant awardees were required to present a report panel at the following Convention. From the 2014 Convention on, workshop organizers interested in sharing the results from the research process are encouraged to submit panel proposals through the regular panel submission process. This is optional, however, and does not guarantee placement on the next year’s convention program.
