Research Workshop Grants Committee

ISA created the Workshop Grants program in 1992 to promote the interaction of scholars from different parts of the global international studies community. Research workshop grants aim to bring together small groups of participants focusing on a significant research problem that stimulates cross-national examination or perspectives and engages the interests of several disciplines.


The Research Workshop Grants Committee is responsible for the careful evaluation and selection of workshop grant proposals. They publicize the criteria and selection process of the ISA Research Grant Program and utilize as many vehicles of communications as accessible to the committee and audience. In addition, the committee develops and implements standardized procedures as to the selection of grants to be made by the Executive Committee and provides for post-Research and Workshop evaluation and reporting of results to the ISA Governing Council.
