APSA and the U.K. Political Studies Association (PSA) invite Organized Sections and Specialist Groups to submit proposals for an International Engagement Grant. The program is intended to foster closer links between the associations and provide opportunities for research collaboration. Funding of up to £3,000 is available to support the costs of overseas travel and personal accommodation in order to participate in specially arranged workshops, meetings or symposia. We especially encourage applications that incorporate early career researchers and draw on participants from a diverse range of institutions. The deadline for applications is December 1st.

I would like to invite all section members to become a member of our award committees for 2016 awards - the Aaron Wildavsky Dissertation Award and the Best Paper Award (descriptions below). These awards not only recognize the cutting-edge work being done in the field but actively shape the field and the careers of both emerging and established scholars.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest. Committees will be convened in December and awards will be determined in June and presented at the 2016 meeting in Philadelphia. If you cannot commit to serving this year, please make a note to nominate your best dissertators and paper presenters later this year.
The Best Paper Award recognizes the best paper dealing with religion and politics presented at the previous years APSA Annual Meeting.
The Aaron Wildavsky Award recognizes the best dissertation on religion and politics successfully defended within the last two years.
