Subject: The SIP Grants
The Shpilman Institute for Photography (The SIP) announces two calls
for papers for its 2011 Grants Program. The first is devoted
specifically to research in philosophy and photography; the second is
a general call for research in the field of photography.
The SIP invites scholars and independent researchers from all over the
world to submit their applications through its website,
www.thesip.org, and I will appreciate if you could help us in
distributing the calls among your graduate students and colleagues.
Grants for individuals and group research will range from US $5,000 up
to $15,000. Academic faculty at accredited institutions of higher
education, currently enrolled Ph.D. candidates, previously published
independent scholars, photographic practitioners, and
research-oriented curators are invited to apply. Grants are based on
proposals for research leading to the completion within the grant
period of a written document, whether an essay or extended research
paper, showing deep consideration and thorough, original research on
the selected topic.
Please feel free to email me for any questions you may have.
