The UCF/IAMCR Urban Communication Research Grant

Funded by the Urban Communication Foundation, this grant supports communication and media research that advances our understanding of the growing complexity of the urban environment. It is predicated on the assumption that communication scholars have a valuable contribution to make to an understanding of the urban landscape. The grant is open to all IAMCR members in good standing.

The €1500 grant is designed to support research already in progress or in the beginning stages. It gives priority to projects that feature innovative, inter-disciplinary, applied, and creative approaches to studying the central role of communication in the transformation of urban cultures and communities.

The grant will be awarded each year at the annual IAMCR Conference. Grant winners are expected to attend the conference and to report to IAMCR and the UCF on the progress of their research at the following year's conference.
