S/WG and C/TF additional funding for 2021
With the global pandemic restricting face-to-face events in 2020, resulting in the cancellation of many initiatives of Sections and Working Groups (S/WG) and Committees and Task Forces (C/TF), IAMCR is committed to boosting the S/WG and C/TF Funds in 2021 with an extra funding round in May and additional funds for publication projects. While a total of $3,500 in funding has already been allocated to three projects in the January round, for the two remaining rounds this year (May and September), the following budget will be made available:
- $6,000 for S/WG or events, with a limit of $2,000 per proposal.
- $12,000 for publication projects, with a limit of $3,000 per proposal.
Proposals will need to respond to the objectives of the S&WG Fund and follow the guidelines provided on the IAMCR website. Proposals will be reviewed by the S/WG and C/TF Fund Selection Committee with an additional member representing the Publication Committee to participate in the review of proposals for publication projects.
Applications can be submitted anytime of the year but will be evaluated at the following times:
- Decisions on applications submitted by 31 May will be announced by 30 June 2021.
- Decisions on applications submitted by 30 September will be announced by 31 October 2021.
