ATHE Grants Guidelines – Conference 2016
*Please use this new shared form if you would like to apply for a grant for any of the following: a pre-conference, a debut panel, or a specific session. If you want to make a basic AV request for a Focus-Group sponsored session or a Multi-Disciplinary session, you can do that on the Session Proposal Form.*
About The Different Types of Grants:
ATHE announces the availability of a $6,000 pool to be used by its focus groups that seek to offer pre- or post-conference sessions scheduled in conjunction with ATHE's annual conference. A single focus group may submit an application, but ATHE would also accept a submission from two or more focus groups wanting to offer a combined pre- or post-conference.
There is neither a minimum nor a maximum grant amount, but the charge of these funds is to assist Focus Groups in expanding their educational focus. These funds should foster creative, pedagogical, and/or scholarly activities that hold true to our organization's stated vision, mission, values, and goals.
These grants are available for distribution, and may only support activities that occur between August 8, 2016 and August 16, 2016. Applications may be fully funded or accepted with only partial funding based on how well the application meets the established criteria.
Debut Panel Grants
Any focus group is welcome to apply for a grant to support a debut panel for emerging scholars in the field. You could apply for a session guest pass, for example, or for other supporting funds.
You are welcome to apply for a session guest pass ($50) or more than one. You are also welcome to apply for a full-conference guest pass ($75). Those passes can be a great way to enrich a panel by supporting the attendance of someone who might not otherwise have access to ATHE or be inclined to attend. Request a full-conference guest pass only for someone who will present in multiple sessions. Or you can apply for something else we might not anticipate but that would support your session. You may not request more than $500 total.
Every year grant applications are considered by the Conference Committee. This year the conference committee will consider the following as it weighs grant requests:
Other Info and Requirements:
The 2016 Conference Committee Vice President, Kelly Howe, will be forwarded the Grant Requests following the November 1, 2015 online submission deadline. Applicants will be notified of the funding decision no later than March 1, 2015.
