Travel Awards

The International Society for Neoplatonic Studies is pleased to announce Travel Grants for the ISNS Conference in Cagliari, Sardinia, June 20-24, 2012.

We will be awarding a $ 750,00 travel grant to the authors of four particularly good abstracts that have been properly submitted for the conference. Applicants are urged to consider re-writing their abstracts before submitting them, especially if they were shorter than the one-page maximum.

Although mostly designed for students and those in the early stages of their careers, retirees with no access to travel funds will also be considered. The grant will be given to scholars meeting these criteria who:

  • are participating in the Cagliari conference
  • have had their abstracts approved by the organizers
  • have paid their 2012 membership dues

Those interested in applying for this grant should send a copy of their abstract in either Microsoft Word or PDF format to:

Alessandro Linguiti ( and Lloyd Gerson (

Please let the judges know whether you are a student, just beginning your academic career, or a retiree.
The deadline for receipt of abstracts is March 31, 2012.

Awards will be announced by April 15. If you have questions, please email John Finamore at
