Conference grants and funded fellowships - ISA

The Institute for the Study of the Americas (ISA), School of Advanced Study, University of London, is delighted to announce the launch of two new funding schemes for the academic year 2012-13. Full details are available by following the links below.

Conference Grants

Applications are now sought for Conference Grants for scholars working on any aspect of the Americas. At least six conferences will be funded under this scheme in 2012-13, to a value of up to £2,200 per conference.Closing date: 1 August 2012.

Funded Fellowships

Applications are now sought for funded Fellowships at the Institute for the Study of the Americas. These Fellowships represent an opportunity for scholars working on any aspect of the Americas to undertake research at ISA for a period of up to eight consecutive months during the academic year. These positions attract a modest monthly stipend and at least two funded Fellowship appointments will be made for 2012-13. Fellows will be free to undertake research using the Institute's facilities, including the library, IT and office accommodation. Fellows will be expected to play an active part in the intellectual life of the Institute and the School, whilst also engaging in its mission to promote and facilitate research by assisting with the editing of ISA publications and convening academic events. It should be noted that, because the School does not participate in the Research Excellence Framework (REF), publications and other research outputs resulting from these Fellowships may be used by the Fellow's 'home' institution as part of its submission to the REF. Closing date: 1 August 2012.
