Nominations Open for International Workshop Awards


Organisation: Antipode Foundation

Apply By:  31/05/2018


 

The Antipode Foundation is seeking nominations for International Workshop Awards to support radical geographers holding events (including conferences, workshops, seminar series, summer schools and action research meetings) that further radical analyses of geographical issues and engender the development of a new and better society.
The Antipode Foundation will explicitly privilege applicants and initiatives from historically under-represented groups, regions, countries and institutions.

The Foundation encourages applications that are collaborative in nature. It strives to fund work that leads to the exchange of ideas across disciplinary boundaries, countries and sectors; and to the building of relationships and productive partnerships. The foundation encourages participation and engagement, cooperation and co-enquiry, whether with fellow scholars, research groups, university departments, NGOs, think tanks or social movements. The Foundation also encourages initiatives that are adventurous, that explore the boundaries of established academic practice, and that trespass and disrupt disciplinary borders.

 

Prize Information:

The Antipode Foundation expects to allocate each successful application up to £10,000 (ten thousand pounds sterling, or its equivalent in the awardee’s currency of choice) but the amount of the grant will vary according to the nature of the proposed event(s) and location.

 

Eligibility:

 

Anyone can apply for an Antipode Foundation International Workshop Award (including activists, academics and students), but the grant must be held and administered by a host institution (and it is also expected that university facilities will be used to support the event wherever possible). Events must take place within the year of award; in this case between 1st August 2018 and 31st July 2019.

 

Application forms:

 

Application forms are available here or from the Foundation’s Secretary, Andy Kent (antipode@live.co.uk), and should be returned to him before/on 31st May 2018.

 

Assessment process:

 

Applications will be considered by a panel of Trustees of the Antipode Foundation, and all applicants will be notified of the results in late July 2018. Unfortunately, we cannot give detailed feedback to unsuccessful applicants.
