FTGS Convention Award

About the Award

Feminist Theory and Gender Studies (FTGS) has created this convention award to aid applicants affiliated with or graduating from institutions that do not enjoy significant resource and geographical privilege (i.e. those from the Global South in particular) will be given first consideration. Among those, priority will be given to those in their final years of graduate work completion through to their first years of their post-doctoral career who demonstrate the highest level of need; a lack of institutional support; the significance of their participation in the Convention; and a record of ongoing engagement with the FTGS Section, ISA organization, and ISA conventions.

General Information

Two awards are available at the value of $800USD each. The amount of the award reflects the costs of four nights of accommodation at convention hotels, but may be used as the awardees see fit. Funds will be provided at the convention itself by a member of the FTGS Exec upon proof of registration. No receipts or expense forms will be required: the award is in the full sum, to be disposed of in the manner that best supports convention participation for the awardees.

  1. Recipients must be a current member of ISA
  2. Applicants are asked to submit their CV and a letter outlining their case for support, detailing the following:

    • Projected costs of attendance
    • any other institutional support or alternative resources available to them


    • A $800.00 (USD) cash prize will be awarded to two recipients

    Selection Process

    • The FTGS Inclusion and Transformation Sub-Committee will decide the provision of support by the end of 2019 and inform applicants of the outcome in early January 2020.
