International Conference Panels Travel Grant

APSA is pleased to announce a Call for Panel Proposals to be presented at the international conferences of select national political science associations. APSA’s international committee will review full-panel proposals for in-person conference presentation and select 3-4 submissions to receive travel grants of up to $4,000 per panel. We expect to issue two Calls per year, with a fall deadline for Spring/Summer conferences (PSA, IPPA, CPSA, and IPSA) and a spring deadline for Fall/Winter conferences (ECPR, CEPSA, KPSA, PSAI, and AMECIP).
Proposals should be submitted by November 6 via wufoo. Contact [email protected] with questions.

Eligible Conferences

APSA has agreements with a number of partner associations to foster collaboration and engagement among our communities, including through reciprocal panel allocations at one another’s conferences. We invite APSA members to utilize these panel allocations at the annual conferences of select national political science associations:


Fall Call for Proposals


Spring Call for Proposals


Panel Proposals and Submission

Panel Proposals for the Fall 2022 cycle should be submitted by November 6 via wufoo.


Panel Proposals should include:

  • Panel title and brief theme statement/abstract
  • CV of panel organizer
  • Detailed Panel Description
  • Travel Grant Budget Justification


The Detailed Panel Description (1-3 pages) should thoroughly convey the theme and importance of the panel. In addition to identifying the panelists and paper topics/titles, the panel description should explain why the chosen conference will be a good venue for the panel theme, how the panel draws upon or will contribute to existing literature, and should also reflect on other factors as appropriate (diversity of panelists, connection of panel to other projects, etc.).


The Travel Grant Budget Justification (1 page) should identify the requested level of support (up to $4,000), itemize the expected usage of funds, and mention any expected departmental or additional support funding. 

Proposals will be accepted in two cycles (Spring and Fall) on a rolling basis. We will begin reviewing proposals for the Fall 2022 cycle starting on November 6. No more than 2 proposals will be accepted for funding in each cycle; though, additional panels may be accepted without funding.
