Large Henkels Lecture.
Bi-Annual deadline dates second Tuesday in October and second Tuesday in February
October 14, 2014 and February 10, 2015
Proposals are due two funding cycles in advance of event.
Grants of up to $20,000 to cover the costs of:
- an academic conference on campus or in one of the University’s international sites,
- a series of lectures or performances, or
- a single, significant visiting lecturer or performer.
Departments, institutes and interdisciplinary groups can bring scholars to Notre Dame for two or more days of public events including a lecture, colloquium, panel, or performance. Visiting scholars and performers must be among the leaders of their field. While all events may not result in a publication, the Institute expects that proposals will be designed with the goal of having a lasting effect beyond a series of lectures or performances. In addition to the support requested from ISLA, please list all other sources.
NEW FUNDING LEVELS FOR GLOBAL GATEWAY VENUES: Because of the additional costs of conferences in global gateway venues (Dublin, London, Rome, Tantur), Henkels Large Conference grants may include budgets up to $30,000 for those venues. However, that level of funding must be for conferences that will convene in AY 2014-15 or after. Based on available resources, not all proposals will be funding at that level. In the event a proposal cannot be funded at $30,000, it will be considered for funding at the usual $20,000 level and the award will be made if the balance is obtained from other sources.

Provost’s Distinguished Women Lecturers Program

It is expected that distinguished visitors will be present in a department for a period of four to six days, either in one visit or a series of visits.
