Faculty of Arts & Science Conference Fund

The FAS Conference Fund provides support for regular Faculty members and continuing adjuncts in the Faculty of Arts and Science who are organizing professional conferences, colloquia, symposia, or workshops to disseminate their research. The amount of the award is up to $3,000 for events organized in the Kingston area or at the Bader College in Herstmonceux. Events organized elsewhere in Canada or internationally will also be considered.

Funding is awarded on a competitive basis and priority is given to events that (a) reach a broad audience, particularly at the national or international levels, (b) include student participation, particularly involving presentation of their research, (c) include partnering support from a department or departments and (d) incorporate attention to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigeneity. The deadlines for applications are December 1st and June 1st.  Normally, funding decisions are made, and applicants are informed, no more than two weeks after the relevant application deadline.

Funds must be spent no later than 60 days after the competition of the event. A report on the outcome of the conference will be required no later than 60 days of the completion of the conference.

Please reach out to Adrian Kelly (adrian.kelly@queensu.ca) FAS Research Project Advisor if you are applying for a Connection Grant to obtain the matching funding letter of support. You are not required to apply through the FAS Conference Fund.
