About this grant

This grant provides continued support to the International Society for Third-Sector Research, a global membership association with over 900 members from more than 70 countries that encourages, supports and provides academic legitimacy to the study of civil society. In 2022-2023, the grantee will: host its biannual conference in Montreal; improve its member’s experience; attract and retain scholars, researchers and students from the Global South; and host regional Ph.D. seminars. Founded in 1992 and originally based at Johns Hopkins University, the grantee’s major accomplishments include: convening biennial international research conferences; publishing special reports, conference working papers and a scholarly journal; and convening regional meetings of research networks on various continents. In mid-2018, the grantee became an independent nonprofit but continues to be supported by Johns Hopkins University.
