Regional Development Grants
Application Deadline: June 1
2017–2018 AAR Regional Development Grant Application Cycle
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. Generally, grants funded fall into two categories: seed funding to begin ongoing regional initiatives, or one-time funds for special projects. Where possible, projects should be designed so that they may be duplicated or transported to other regions.
The lead applicant(s) must have current AAR membership. If their proposal is selected, the applicants(s) must maintain AAR membership throughout the grant period.
In general, grants will not be given to the same individuals in consecutive years.
No grant will exceed $4,000.
All grant applications must be submitted electronically through the AAR’s Regional Development Grant Online Submission System.
All grant proposals should include the following:
June 1: Deadline to submit grant proposals to the Online Submission System.
September 1: Regional Development Grant Awards announced.
