Financial Assistance

The Council has set aside limited funds to assist participants in ISSR conferences coming from countries with non-convertible currencies. Those who wish to request financial assistance from the ISSR are asked to submit their application to the General Secretary ().

Such support can only be offered if the following conditions are met in full:

  • The quality of the proposed paper must be good. A paper that has already been published in French or English will not be accepted.
  • The applicant must agree to give a paper at the Conference and remain in residence for the duration of the conference.
  • The deadline for submitting application for financial assistance is January 31st, 2019. An Abstract of about 3 pages should accompany each application.
  • The application must also contain a short curriculum vitae.
  • The inability of the applicant to pay for participation in the Conference must be demonstrated.
  • The application must be accompanied by a letter from the head of the applicant's academic department or research centre certifying that financial assistance cannot be obtained from the applicant's department, research centre or from national and international foundations.
  • Other things being equal, priority will be given to those who have never received financial assistance to participate in an ISSR conference.
  • Applicants who are informed that their application has been approved in principle must submit the full text of their paper in English or French (between 5,000 and 6,000 words) to the General Secretary no later than May 1st, 2019.
  • Successful applicants must become members of the ISSR/SISR and must submit their papers for consideration by the Editorial Committee for publication in Social Compass.
  • Payment of financial assistance will be made only when the applicant sends the remaining part of the original ticket (not a photocopy) to the Treasurer () after the conference.

Only those applicants who meet these conditions in full will be eligible for financial support

from the ISSR. Applicants are also reminded that requests for funding cannot be met in


Final decisions rest with the Programme Committee.
