AIIA offering national publication support grant
The Research Committee of the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) is now accepting expressions of interest for a publication support grant.
Worth up to $7,500, the grant will be used to facilitate the publication of an original and high quality book on a contemporary topic of major relevance to Australian foreign policy and must incorporate some transnational or comparative perspectives.
Funds can be utilized as a publishing subvention or spent on hosting a workshop for contributors to an edited volume, or on research assistance. The AIIA can also make in-kind contributions such as hosting workshops and/or helping with the preparation of the publication manuscript.
As part of the grant, the AIIA is keen that the publications include some dissemination of the book's findings to AIIA members and the general public, possibly in the form of a book launch event. Other possibilities include a lecture or speech delivered by an international contributor at a local AIIA branch.
Expressions of interest are due on Sunday 21st October, 2014 and should include:
- draft book proposal and intended publisher
- draft budget
- plan for dissemination of findings to AIIA members and the general public
- Curriculum Vitae of applicant(s)
Applications should be send to AIIA National Office at email@example.com
Preference will be given to proposals which have already received attention from potential publishers. Membership of the AIIA will be highly regarded.
