Antipode Foundation International Workshop Awards 2018 (up to £10,000)

Antipode Foundation International Workshop Awards 2018 (up to £10,000)

Deadline: May 31, 2018

Applications are invited for the Antipode Foundation International Workshop Awards 2018. The awards are intended to support radical geographers holding events (including conferences, workshops, seminar series, summer schools and action research meetings) that further radical analyses of geographical issues and engender the development of a new and better society. The Antipode Foundation will explicitly privilege applicants and initiatives from historically under-represented groups, regions, countries and institutions.

The Foundation encourages applications that are collaborative in nature. They strive to fund work that leads to the exchange of ideas across disciplinary boundaries, countries and sectors; and to the building of relationships and productive partnerships. They encourage participation and engagement, cooperation and co-enquiry, whether with fellow scholars, research groups, university departments, NGOs, think tanks or social movements.


  • The Antipode Foundation expects to allocate each successful application up to £10,000 (ten thousand pounds sterling, or its equivalent in the awardee’s currency of choice) but the amount of the grant will vary according to the nature of the proposed event(s) and location.

The distribution of funds will be as equitable as possible, with prospective additional resources being taken into consideration. The scheme is not intended to allow organisers to make a surplus from an event.


  • Anyone can apply for an Antipode Foundation International Workshop Award (including activists, academics and students), but the grant must be held and administered by a host institution (and it is also expected that university facilities will be used to support the event wherever possible);
  • Events must take place within the year of award; in this case between August 1, 2018 and July 31, 2019. Those who have already received funding for a previous workshop are not eligible to apply for another;
  • Eligible expenses may include economy-class travel, translation, accommodation and catering.


Application forms are available here or from the Foundation’s Secretary, Andy Kent via [email protected], and should be returned to him before/on May 31, 2018.
