Co-Sponsored Events Awards
Share |


ASTR Co-sponsored Events exist to:

  • Fulfill ASTR's purpose through collaboration with other organizations and institutions;
  • Foster closer relationships with cognate organizations and/or projects; and
  • Increase the visibility of the work of both ASTR and the award recipient within a wider professional context.


Applications may come from individuals, organizations, institutions (or a combination). Applications will be considered from any nation. ASTR co-sponsored events receive the endorsement of ASTR; however, ASTR is not able to offer organizational or administrative assistance to awardees. Events of regional, national, or international significance in the format of conferences, colloquia, symposia, summits, etc. will be considered provided that they align with ASTR's purpose, namely, to foster scholarship on theatre and performance, either historical or contemporary, with respect to the US or abroad. Although applicants may apply for funds, the co-sponsorships will normally take the form of an endorsement without funding. In exceptional cases where monetary support is awarded, such support will be capped at $500, and applicants should emphasize forms of in-kind support.

Application: A complete application consists of:

  • A 1500-word rationale and description of the event;
  • Evidence of sponsorship from any extant organizations or institutions;
  • A draft program including participants' names and/or event descriptions;
  • A budget with explanation of applicable costs

Applications are considered twice annually by the Executive Committee of ASTR.

Evaluation: Evaluation will be based upon:

  • Intellectual significance and innovation of the event;
  • Alignment with ASTR's purpose; reputation of proposers;
  • Demonstrated commitment to the project; and
  • Likely outcomes.


Please have your submissions by July 16, 2018.
