Regional Development Grants
Deadline: August 1
Regional Development Grants provide funds for special projects within the regions that promise to benefit the scholarly and professional life of AAR members and do the work of the AAR in the regions. Workshops, special programs, training events and other innovative regional projects may be funded through this source. Where possible, projects are designed so that they may be duplicated or transported to other regions.
Applications should include a narrative description of the project detailing how the project promises to benefit the scholarly and professional life of AAR members and the work of the region. Please include comments on how these projects or activities may be adapted to other regional groups. The application should state the time period covered by the project and provide a detailed budget (office expenses, travel expenses, honoraria, stipend, and other expenses). Projects are to be completed within one year of award announcement, unless other arrangements have been made with the AAR Executive Office. Institutional overhead costs should not be included in this budget. No grant will exceed $4,000.
