CSSE Support for Short-term Scholarly Events

This funding opportunity is presently suspended.

The mission of CSSE is to advance knowledge and inform practice in educational settings. The goals for knowledge mobilization include increasing visibility for CSSE and the work of its members. Our major scholarly event is the annual conference affiliated with Congress. This short-term scholarly event funding support enables CSSE members to get together at other times throughout the year to connect, share their work and connect to other education communities.  CSSE provides seed funding support for these short-term scholarly initiatives (maximum $2500 per event).

Funded organizers of such events must ensure that the CSSE logo appears on all conference materials and advertising, and that CSSE be acknowledged at the event.


Seed money up to $2500 per event.


We invite proposals for scholarly events for CSSE members that may be one or two day conference, institutes, symposia, or workshops. The proposals will be assessed according to the following criteria:

  • Alignment of the proposed event with CSSE mission and objectives
  • Interdisciplinary nature of the event (bridging interests of various associations within CSSE)
  • Scheduling of event to be between October 1 and April 30 (so as to not overlap with the annual conference)
  • Graduate student participation at discounted costs
  • Applicants for the funding are current CSSE members


The applicant must be a current member of CSSE.

  1. title, date, location
