Call for Proposals: 2020 Travel Research Engagement Grants

The Project on Middle East Political Science announces a call for proposals for POMEPS Travel – Research – Engagement (TRE) grants for 2020. Awards of up to $3,000 will be offered to support research travel to the broader Middle East in support of an ongoing academic research project or the development of new research projects. Proposals for research outside the Middle East will be considered where travel to appropriate MENA countries is not safe.

Grant recipients are encouraged to submit articles based on their TRE-supported research for possible publication on Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog. The proposed travel should be anytime in 2020. While there is a preference for junior scholars, defined as pre-tenure, the competition is open to academic political scientists at all career stages. Awards are not restricted to U.S. citizens or residents.

Proposals including a CV, research proposal, and budget should be submitted via this link by November 22, 2019. (Deadline has been extended – originally was November 15.)

Past recipients of TRE grants are eligible to apply, but please be advised that priority will be given to those who have not previously received funding.
