International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts

The IAFA is committed to making attendance of the ICFA feasible for financially disadvantaged members of our ​community. All invited artists, authors, and scholars who do not receive institutional assistance and all graduate students are eligible to apply for a grant. The funds will be distributed thus:

  • 2 international invited artists/authors: ​US$500 each
  • 2 scholars: one international US$700, one from the US at US$300​*
  • 2 students: one international US$700, one from the US at US$300​*

*Some additional consideration, in the form of an additional complimentary room night, will be presented to American recipients whose distance from the continental United States results in significantly higher travel expenses.

To assist the IAFA in funding these grants, IAFA requires that recipients stay at the conference hotel. The hotel compensates IAFA based on room usage. This compensation helps us fund these grants.

Recipients will be decided by blind draw and will receive a check in the appropriate amount at the end of the conference.
