Call for Applications: Special Projects Fund
Special projects to advance the political science discipline

Proposals for grants of up to $25,000
DEADLINE: 28 April 2018 at 12:00 midnight EDT. 

The American Political Science Association seeks proposals from groups of members for projects aimed at advancing the political science discipline and/or a tackling a challenge facing the discipline. Projects must be evidence-based and provide wider benefits for the profession and the discipline. Projects must be collaborative and can be focused on any area of disciplinary work, inclusive of teaching, research, service, and public engagement. As such, proposals that are for a traditional scholarly project (e.g. production of a single author book or journal article) will not be accepted. We encourage proposals for teaching and learning related projects, especially those that facilitate cross-institutional sharing of expertise, and are especially interested in activities that advance the development of pedagogical resources that can be disseminated widely. We welcome and encourage proposals involving scholars from a diverse and varied set of backgrounds, approaches and fields of study.

Sample projects may include, but not be limited to the following:

To apply, please prepare the following materials and upload them to the APSA website at: www.apsanet.org/centennial/grants. Applications are due at midnight eastern, 28 April 2018.
