Scholar-Activist Project Awards

Antipode Foundation Scholar-Activist Project Awards are intended to support collaborations between academics, non-academics and activists (from NGOs, think tanks, social movements, or community grassroots organisations, among other places) that further radical analyses of geographical issues and engender the development of a new and better society. They are aimed at promoting programmes of action-research, participation and engagement, cooperation and co-enquiry, and more publicly-focused forms of geographical investigation. The foundation strives to fund work that leads to the exchange of ideas across and beyond the borders of the academy and builds meaningful relationships and productive partnerships.

Projects could take many forms including, but not limited to: collaborative research with artistic, community, cultural, grassroots, or social movement groups; the production of educational materials and other innovative pedagogical initiatives; and the promotion of links between universities and institutions/organizations outside the academy.

The Antipode Foundation expects to allocate each project up to £10,000 (ten thousand pounds sterling, or its equivalent in the awardee’s currency of choice) but the amounts of its grants will vary according to the proposed project. The distribution of funds will be as equitable as possible, with other prospective resources and the nature of the proposed project being taken into consideration. The Antipode Foundation will explicitly privilege applicants and initiatives from historically under-represented groups, regions, countries, and institutions in its decision making processes.

International Workshop Awards

Antipode Foundation International Workshop Awards are intended to support radical geographers holding events (including conferences, workshops, seminar series, summer schools, and action research meetings) that further radical analyses of geographical issues and engender the development of a new and better society. The Antipode Foundation will explicitly privilege applicants and initiatives from historically under-represented groups, regions, countries, and institutions.

The Foundation encourages applications that are collaborative in nature. We strive to fund work that leads to the exchange of ideas across disciplinary boundaries, countries, and sectors; and to the building of relationships and productive partnerships. We encourage participation and engagement, cooperation and co-enquiry, whether with fellow scholars, research groups, university departments, NGOs, think tanks or social movements. The Foundation also encourages initiatives that are adventurous, that explore the boundaries of established academic practice, and that trespass and disrupt disciplinary borders. It seeks work that is innovative and original, but more than that, it wants to fund work that is significant: it’d like to support activities that have implications for praxis, to better understand contemporary political concerns and to develop alternatives.

The Antipode Foundation expects to allocate each successful application up to £10,000 (ten thousand pounds sterling, or its equivalent in the awardee’s currency of choice) but the amount of the grant will vary according to the nature of the proposed event(s) and location. The distribution of funds will be as equitable as possible, with prospective additional resources being taken into consideration. The scheme is not intended to allow organizers to make a surplus from an event.
