Conference Grants provide partial support for conferences and colloquia hosted by HFA faculty members and their departments either virtually or on-campus. 

Award amounts will be determined based on a 1:2 match up to the maximum $3,000, e.g. a proposal that has secured $650 in funding at the time of application, would be eligible for up to $1,300 toward expenses from HFA. 


Full-time HFA faculty members may apply.

Application process

Please refer to the Quick Reference Guide to HFA Faculty Awards and Grants for the most up-to-date information about the application process. 

The HFA Research Council will evaluate and award proposals on a competitive basis.

Post-grant report

Faculty members who receive Conference Grants are required to submit a one-page report to the Associate Dean for Research summarizing the conference within one month of the event.
