Section and Working Group Project Fund

IAMCR makes funds available to projects undertaken by its sections and working groups (S&WG). The objectives of the fund are:

  • Primary objective: Strengthen Section and Working Group activities outside the main IAMCR international conferences
  • Secondary objective 1: Enhance the collaboration between the IAMCR Section and Working Groups in these non-main conference activities
  • Secondary objective 2: Increase the participation of IAMCR members in these non-main conference Section and Working Group activities

Examples of the types of projects able to receive funding include:

  • Section and Working Group publications (books and/or journals)
  • Section and Working Group events (workshops, small conferences, etc.)
  • Section and Working Group advocacy and outreach
Proposals for Section and Working Group projects should be submitted by the Chair of the respective Section or Working Group. Joint proposals from two or more Section and/or Working Groups are also welcome. This article explains the conditions and procedures for applying for funds and includes a downloadable application form.
