The Mosse Program will assist in funding International Conferences, Symposiums and Workshops which are connected to the Program's aims and vision and promote them.
Conference organizers who seek to receive the Program's help in funding these sorts of academic events should provide us with the following documentation (in English):

- Name of the organizing body/institution and names of the organizing committee members, including their contact details.
- List of participants, including their academic affiliation.
- Conference Programme (a tentative programme can be added as long as it includes the number of planned sessions/panels and their themes).
- An estimated-budget document stating the expected expenses, including a list of other grant-giving bodies (if any). The proposed budget should include publicity, travel, lodging, and honorarium expenses.
Priority is given to academic events that would:

- Whose participants' list includes faculty, students and staff from The Hebrew University in Jerusalem and/or the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and that are planned to take place in one of these two academic institutions.
- Encourage the participation and collaboration of of graduate/research students and junior faculty.
