USF Seminar Series - Call for applications

31st Aug 2018


Deadline: 14th September 2018

The Urban Studies Foundation Seminar Series Competition aims to support the generation of internationally excellent research in all areas of urban studies. In the 2018 competition, USF seeks to support between 6 and 8 seminar series, in each case up to a maximum of £20,000.

USF welcomes proposals from academics working in any country and the proposal is expected to be of international interest in terms of its coverage and scope. Each series must propose at least two separate events in one or more different institutions. Details of funded proposals from previous years can be found in the Further Particulars document, as well as on USF website under the Seminar Series profiles and Previous Grantees section.

All proposals should be capable of generating scholarly debate and dialogue that is compelling, significant, and contribute to publications of world standard. Unlike previous years, there will be only one stage in the application process.

Prospective applicants should download and consult the Further Particulars and application form documents on the USF website. Applicants should send their completed application forms and supporting documents to Joe Shaw ([email protected]) before the competition deadline 14th September 2018.
