Funding & Support Requests


Faculty Fellows Manuscript Symposium Funding Application

The Ansari Institute offers up to $5000 for a manuscript symposium to faculty fellows. The purpose of the award is to provide faculty fellows an opportunity to solicit feedback from one or two top scholars in the field on a manuscript draft prior to its publication.

Alternatively, the award may also be used to celebrate a book after its publication. While the institute welcomes applications from both junior and senior scholars, priority will be given to junior scholars who can benefit from the grant to advance their careers. 

In addition to the funding award, the Ansari Institute will offer logistical support to organize the event. The institute typically awards one such grant per semester. Applications are reviewed twice/year at the end of the fall/spring semesters. Successful applicants are notified prior to the start of the next semester. If you need a more urgent review and decision outside of this application cycle, please contact
