Conference and Presentation Fund

Participation in professional conferences and presentation opportunities allow RISD faculty, librarians and museum curators to share their research, professional and creative activity, and scholarly work to a broader audience, enriching their teaching and professional practice, and enhancing the visibility of RISD’s role as a leader in the global discourse about art and design. In recognition of the value this brings to faculty members, librarians, curators, and to the institution, Academic Affairs administers a fund to support those who have been invited to engage an audience in dialogue about their work (such as a conference, workshop or gallery talk). This fund supplements travel, conference, and professional development funds in departments and divisions.

Reviewed By: Department Head and Dean

Grants do not exceed $1,500. The application process requires that the department and/or division, Library or Museum also contribute funding.

DEADLINE: Rolling through 05/31/19
