Academic Conferences

IHS attends over 20 conferences a year, representing eight academic disciplines.

Conferences are a great place to catch up with IHS staff or participate in one of the many IHS events that take place there. These events often include receptions, policy research seminars, career development workshops, mock interviews, and more.

IHS can also fund your travel to conferences through our Conference and Research Grant, which provides up to $750 to cover the cost of travel or other career-related expenses.

We encourage you to sign up for updates on upcoming conferences or contact us to learn more about what we’ll be doing and where you can find us.
