Each year, the Edward Artinian fund offers a grant of up to $8,500 to support early-career scholars in publishing their research. Artinian Workshops support early-career scholars by linking them with mid-career and senior scholars to pursue a collaborative publication.
The award is intended to support a lead organizer or small team in identifying or developing 6-10 research manuscripts for publication in an edited book, journal special issue, or journal symposium. The organizer(s) will also serve as a special issue editor or part of an editorial team to advance the research towards publication. After identifying appropriate authors and research manuscripts for a proposed publication, organizers will convene a writing workshop to bring authors together for a period of revision, editing, and networking. Organizers are encouraged to consider publishing in Organized Section journals, but may also contact other journals or publishers.
- Applications should be submitted by the scholars that will organize the project.
- Organizers are responsible for leading every step of the publication process, including: developing the theme, identifying authors and manuscripts for inclusion, identifying and communicating with journals or publishers interested in the publication, organizing and executing the writing workshop, and editing and revising the publication for final submission
- Up to $2,500 may be put towards a modest honorarium for the lead organizer(s). Remaining funds should be put towards travel, accommodation, and food costs associated with the writing workshop.
- Workshops must be held either at APSA’s Centennial Center in Washington, DC or in conjunction with APSA’s Annual Meeting.
- Workshops must be held by September 30th of the year following the grant decision.
- Organizers should seek to include 6-10 other scholars in the resulting publication; at least 4 of whom must be at the early stage of their career (PhD students or scholars less than 5 years out from earning their PhD).
- All authors must be APSA members at the time of participation in the writing workshop.
