SPARC Program Purpose: To "spark" IASWG members' innovative practice, education, training and research projects through endorsement and small grants to advance the IASWG mission.
The IASWG is proud of the exciting array of approved SPARC Projects approved in our first three years of operation. You can link overviews and listing of SPARC Projects below. All IASWG SPARC Projects have applied for and received IASWG Endorsement, and many have requested and received IASWG Grants. Potential applicants should review the submission guidelines. Our current funding levels range from $250 to $1000 per grant. Thus far, we have SPARC Projects from Australia, Canada, South Africa and United States.
Applications are reviewed twice per year, in advance of the IASWG Board Meetings, generally held in June and November. The next deadline is now May 15, 2017.
IASWG members are welcome to submit proposals to the SPARC Program, requesting endorsement with or without funding, for special projects (e.g., training, research, and practice) consistent with the mission of IASWG.
All proposals should be sent as an email attachment to email@example.com. Please feel free to contact Carol S. Cohen at the above email address or by phone at +516.877.4427 to discuss the Program with a member of the SPARC Committee.
