Schoff publication funds can be used for indexing, translating, technical editing, illustrating, or other publication costs of manuscripts or monographs produced under the auspices of The University Seminars in the fields of economics, sociology, psychology, penology, or the behavioral sciences which have already been approved for publication. Other funds are sometimes available in other fields, including the sciences.
Before applying, the following two conditions must be met:
or all of the publication was influenced by participation in a University
Seminar; a portion of the work was presented and discussed at a University
Seminar, and that discussion affected the book.
The University Seminars’ Schoff Committee considers the value of the book and its involvement with a seminar in comparison with other requests. Funding requests are subject to the following priorities:
Monographs including materials presented and discussed by a speaker at a University Seminar meeting.
The Committee will consider works by a seminar's rapporteur where the work was clearly influenced by participation in the seminar.
The Committee can usually respond within a month. If funding is awarded, bills should be sent directly to The University Seminars as invoices. Reimbursements to the author are often impossible.
Upon publication, the University Seminars requests the following:
Please acknowledge the Schoff Fund at the University Seminars in either of these forms or with similar wording:
