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 2020-2021, the grantee will improve its member’s experience; attract and retain scholars, researchers, and students from the Global South; and demonstrate the connection between research and policy impact. 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.
