The Institute on the Formation of Knowledge invites applications for co-sponsorship of events at the University of Chicago that relate to the formation of knowledge. We welcome applications from UChicago academic units, faculty, and students from any field, organizing events related to the formation of knowledge. We are particularly interested in topics that straddle multiple fields or relate to the Institute’s next two-year research theme of knowledge in diaspora.

Please submit your application by filling out this form. Each application will be reviewed by the steering committee and a decision will be made within a month. Applications should demonstrate the relationship of the proposed event to the formation of knowledge and highlight how the event straddles multiple fields or is related to the knowledge in diaspora research theme. Contact if you have any questions.

Awards typically fall within the $500-1500 range, and are for a percentage of the overall budget.
