Colleges of Arts & Sciences Interdisciplinary Conference Awards

Academic Year 2017–2018 Application

The Colleges of Arts & Sciences (Arts & Humanities; Languages, Linguistics & Literature; Natural Sciences; and Social Sciences)
encourage and support multidisciplinary collaboration and partnerships among their faculty. The Interdisciplinary Conference Awards program was established in order to provide funds for conferences that are hosted/organized by departments or programs of the Arts & Sciences, and that actively involve and reach out to other disciplines (particularly within in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences) in all aspects of conference planning (e.g. speakers, guests, participants, topics, active student involvement). For the purpose of this program, a conference is not interdisciplinary by merely welcoming other colleagues/students from other disciplines to attend. Evidence of interdisciplinary collaboration must be provided.

The Interdisciplinary Conference Awards program is made possible by donations from alumni and friends to the Colleges of Arts & Sciences.
