Wenner-Gren Foundation – Conference /workshop grants
Conferences are defined as public events that are comprised primarily of oral and poster presentations to a larger audience of anthropologists. Priority is given to major conferences sponsored by large international anthropological that serve as their annual or periodic meetings. The majority of the funds granted to such conferences is expected to be used towards expenses for international scholars who are making presentations at the conference and would not otherwise be able to attend. Workshops are defined as working meetings that focus on developing and debating topical issues in theoretical anthropology. Workshops involve a small
group of scholars who meet for a sufficient period of time to deal intensively with the topic. Priority is given to those workshops that devote the majority of time to discussion and debate rather than to the presentation of papers. It is expected that workshops will result in a publication.
- The application must be made by a professional anthropologist who is the primary organizer of the proposed conference or workshop. A co-applicant can be specified on the application. Applications are not accepted from students without a co-applicant who has a doctorate and holds an established academic position.
- Requests by individuals for grants to attend meetings are not accepted.
- Current research grantees (Post-Ph.D. or International Collaborative) may apply for a conference or workshop grant before the completion of their research grant.
- Applicants may submit simultaneous applications for a Conference or Workshop Grant and for a Post Ph.D. Research Grant.
- Individuals cannot be Organizer or Co-Organizer on more than one grant application (Conference or Workshop) per season.
