CLA Retreat 2017


2016-17 Scholarly Intersections Awards and Budgets

Note from Scholarly Intersections Committee: the committee received a record number of high-quality

applications and, after careful review, decided to fund all of them. This required reducing some budget areas.

The decision was made to strictly apply the $1000 total cap (the call announced that proposals over $1000

might be considered) and the $500 maximum for honoraria. The final cut was on hospitality, which was

capped at $100. The FC will be voting at its November meeting on Scholarly Intersections guidelines for next

year, including whether or not to continue with these budget caps.
