The Hayek fund awards grants to aspiring and established academics pursuing liberty-advancing careers and educational initiatives that go beyond standard curricula. The two-fold aim is to help scholars advance their careers, and to innovatively connect students with the ideas of liberty. Career development grants are for students and untenured scholars. These grants can cover travel, application fees, conference fees, and other career-related expenses. Eligible career-advancing activities include, but are not limited to: 1) presentations at academic or professional conferences; 2) travel to academic job interviews on a campus or at professional/academic conferences; 3) travel to archives or libraries for research; participation in career-development or enhancing seminars; 4) distribution of a published article to colleagues in your field; and/or 5) submission of unpublished manuscripts to journals or book publishers. Hayek Fund awards are not given for conference attendance alone. Funding will only be considered for individuals presenting a paper or interviewing for a job at a conference.
