Small grants for workshops in social ontology- Call 2023
One of the key aims of ISOS is to foster innovative approaches and collaborations in social ontology, as well as to support research in social ontology regionally and globally. In service of this, we have started a program to help fund workshops in social ontology.
The ISOS steering committee will consider members' requests to fund workshop events on social ontology. In the 2023 round, we will have up to $10,000 to allocate to such events. Proposals will be reviewed by the steering committee by the end of January 2023.
Proposals must be submitted no later than December 15th 2022 10 PM CET.
Only members may submit a grant proposal.
To submit a grant proposal, fill out the budget template and the workshop grant proposal submission form (below). Email these documents to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We particularly welcome applications from underrepresented regions.
For questions, contact email@example.com
In the grant proposal submission form, applicants will be required to include the following:
Please note that, as a service to future applicants, successful proposals will be made public.
Any workshop funded by ISOS must submit a brief (<1 page) post-workshop report to firstname.lastname@example.org This report must detail what ISOS’s funds were spent on, based on the plan detailed in the original proposal.
No funding proposals will be considered from any member whose past funded proposals have not submitted the required reports.
Please note that all grant reports will be made public.
All proposals receiving funding from ISOS must include recognition of that funding in publicity materials.
To help guide applicants for the 2023 program, we provide the following examples of successful applications from 2022:
