ISA administers two main grants programs to benefit members: (1) Research Workshop Grants and (2) Travel Grants. Additionally, a pilot program (beginning in 2016) supports financial requests for special projects not covered under existing programs: Special Project Grants. ISA uses some membership and conference registration fees to fund these programs.
ISA Research Workshop grants provide funds for ISA members to host a workshop at the ISA Annual Convention, an ISA conference, virtually, or in a venue of choice for the research project team. The grants program is designed to bring together diverse ISA members from across the international studies community to explore significant research problems that are stimulating inquiries in the broad discipline of international studies and its subfields.
