The deadline for proposals to Human Geography’s grants program has been extended to April 15th, 2015.
A huge effort, in terms of labor and time, over 7 years, has produced both a viable new radical journal and a surplus of funds that can be used to support radical activism, research, writing. So the Institute for Human Geography announces its small grant program (up to $5,000 per grant) and invites applications. The main criteria on which proposals will be examined include
- Radical potential of the work
- Effectiveness of the proposal
- Eventual contribution to Human Geography journal
- Past commitment to Human Geography (article, subscription, review of article, etc)
Applications consisting of the following will be reviewed by a Committee consisting of the Editor, the Web Editor, the Book Review Editor and the Opinions Editor:
- Cover page(s) with: (i) names and affiliations of the applicant(s); (ii) short summary of previous work; (iii) statement on the radical character of the proposed research or activism; (iv) statement on the possible publication of results in Human Geography; (v) statement on the applicant’s past commitment to the journal; and (vi) a one paragraph summary of the aims, methods, and possible results of the project.
- This should be followed by a five-paged, double-spaced explanation of the work to be supported.
- A one-paged budget detailing how the funds would be spent.
The application package should be emailed to Institute for Human Geography:email@example.com before two annual deadlines of April 15th and October 15th.
