The mission of Alpha Kappa Delta is to acknowledge and promote excellence in scholarship in the study of sociology, the research of social problems, and such other social and intellectual activities as will lead to improvement in the human condition. In support of this mission, Alpha Kappa Delta chapters are invited to submit proposals for a supplemental grant to fund sociological research symposia on their campus. Alternately, two or more chapters may work cooperatively to submit one proposal.
DEFINITION OF SOCIOLOGICAL RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM
For the purpose of these guidelines, a symposium is defined as a small conference or workshop designed to bring faculty and students (undergraduate and/or graduate) together across campus (or campuses) for the exchange of scholarly information and the application of knowledge about a sociological topic(s) of interest. Symposia are half-day or full-day educational events that offer research content through oral presentations, lectures, panels, poster presentations, and other formats of scholarly information exchange.
AMOUNT AVAILABLE FOR FUNDING
AKD will provide up to $500 per symposium in supplemental support for a limited number of sociological research symposia sponsored by AKD chapters meeting the symposium definition and grant requirements.
Early submission is encouraged as funds are limited. Symposia proposals will be reviewed for acceptance on a first-come, first-served basis if applications exceed the budget.
