The Urban Studies Foundation Seminar Series Competition aims to support the generation of internationally excellent research in all areas of urban studies. In the 2018 competition, they seek to support between 6 and 8 seminar series, in each case up to a maximum of £20,000.

Proposals to the Urban Studies Foundation are welcomed from academics working in any country, and the proposals are expected to be of international interest in terms of its coverage and scope. Each series must propose at least two separate events in one or more different institutions. Details of funded proposals from previous years can be found in the Further Particulars document available to download on the Urban studies Foundation website.
