Research Grant Program For Individual Scholars

The Centennial Center for Political Science and Public Affairs assists APSA members with the costs of research, including travel, interviews, access to archives, or costs for a research assistant. Funds can also be used to assist scholars in publishing their research. 

The typical Centennial Center grant for an individual scholar is between $1,000 and $2,500, but can reach a maximum size of $10,000 for workshops and events or projects in support of the profession, depending on the research fund and the nature of the grant proposal. The next deadline for Centennial Center grant applications is July 1, 2016.

The Centennial Center, its facilities, and research support programs continue to be made possible in part through the generous donations of APSA members.

Who is eligible?

Your membership with APSA must be active in order to be eligible for a grant. You do not need to be a member of APSA visiting scholar program in order to be eligible for a grant. Senior or junior faculty members, post-doctoral fellows, and advanced graduate students are all strongly encouraged to apply. 

What does the grant cover?

A Centennial grant assists APSA members with the costs of research, including travel, interviews, access to archives, or costs for a research assistant. Funds can also be used to assist scholars in publishing their research. Indirect costs (using grant funds for rent or overhead) and fringe benefits are not covered by a Centennial Center research grant. If you have questions about what a grant covers, please contact the Centennial Center team before applying at centennial@apsanet.org.

How to apply?

Applications for the Centennial Center research grant program require:

  • A copy of your CV
  • An abstract (1 page in length)
  • Project statement (up to five pages in length) including a detailed description of the topic; the originality of the proposed study; a summary of the basic ideas and hypotheses; the methodology to be used; the present status of your research; the relevance of your grant application to the grant fund(s) selected; the materials that will be used, and, if applicable, the importance of Washington-area resources to your research. 
  • Two recommendations are required for all Centennial Center grant applications. Your recommendations should speak to the specific research being proposed, as well as your qualifications to undertake it.

The next application deadline for Centennial Center research grants is Friday, July 1, 2016. The application can be found on the official website.

Applications for the Fund for Latino Scholarship and the Paul Volcker Fund are administered separately from other Centennial Center research grant funds. If you are interested in seeking funding from either fund, please contact centennial@apsanet.org for more information.

Applications for the Visiting Scholar Program are also separate from applications for a research grant. If you are interested in supplementing your grant with a stay in the Centennial Center, check the link .
