The Project on Middle East Political Science is delighted to announce a call for proposals for POMEPS Research Grants. The competition is open to academic political scientists at any career stage, from graduate students to senior faculty. Awards will support travel to the Middle East for the purpose of research, with the only requirement being that the research be used to produce at least one article for Foreign Policy’s Middle East Channel.

Interested candidates should submit their proposals at any time to mariakornalian@pomeps.org. Applications should include a research proposal indicating where and when the proposed research will take place, a description of the broader research project, and a CV. Grantees will consult with POMEPS Director Marc Lynch about the articles which they will produce for the Middle East Channel based on their travel.

Applications for this grant will be accepted on a rolling basis: Summer proposals will begin being reviewed on June 1; Fall proposals on September 1; Spring proposals on March 1.
