Conference Support

Conference/Workshop Support

The Institute for Iranian Studies is keen to support the dissemination of advanced research in all fields relating to Iranian Studies through conferences and workshops organised by University of St Andrews students and members of staff. The budget is limited, but the Committee will consider applications for:

(a) organisational assistance (including advertising on our website)
(b) booking of rooms, including the use of Parliament Hall and/or St John’s House as a venue
(c) financial assistance, budget permitting

Level of award: No awards will be for more than £1000 and may be subject to budget constraints

Closing dates: Applications will be considered at Committee meetings, held at least once a semester.

Applications must include:

(a) an outline of the academic purpose and content of the conference/workshop
(b) a list of speakers, invited and proposed
(c) a detailed budget, including other sources of funding

All applicants should also apply for external funding wherever possible.

Successful applicants will be required to provide a short report on the event which will be uploaded to the Institute’s website. This should include the final programme and, preferably, images/photographs as well.
