The International Association for Media and Communication Research is 
now receiving applications for the 2019 IAMCR /Urban Communication 
Research Grant/. The grant is worth USD 1,750 and supports communication 
and media research that advances understanding of the growing complexity 
of the urban environment. IAMCR members in good standing are welcome to 

Hosted by IAMCR and funded by the Urban Communication Foundation 
<http://urbancomm.org>, this grant supports communication and media 
research that advances our understanding of the growing complexity of 
the urban environment. It is predicated on the assumption that 
communication scholars have a valuable contribution to make to an 
understanding of the urban landscape. The grant is open to all IAMCR 
members in good standing.

The USD 1,750 grant is designed to support research already in progress 
or in the beginning stages. It gives priority to projects that feature 
innovative, inter-disciplinary, applied, and creative approaches to 
studying the central role of communication in the transformation of 
urban cultures and communities.

A 6-person committee consisting of four IAMCR members and two Urban 
Communication Foundation representatives will judge the proposals. IAMCR 
representatives in the committee are Nico Carpentier (Chair), Cees 
Hamelink, Janet Wasko and Olesya Venger. Urban Communication Foundation 
representatives are Gary Gumpert and Susan Drucker.

The grant is awarded each year at the annual IAMCR Conference, this in 
Madrid, Spain from July 7-11, 2019. Grant winners are expected to attend 
the conference and present a paper related to urban communication. They 
must also report to IAMCR and the UCF on the progress of their research 
at the following year's conference, and submit a paper for this conference.
