Call for Proposals: 2024 Travel Research Engagement Grants

The Project on Middle East Political Science announces a call for proposals for POMEPS Travel – Research – Engagement (TRE) grants for 2024. 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. Given the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the unusual difficulty of conducting research in the region, we will continue to consider proposals for research which does not involve travel to the Middle East. The proposed research should be anytime in 2024, and proposals which do include travel should include a contingency plan in the event that travel is not possible. 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. Awards granted to foreign recipients are subject to a 30% tax. 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.

Proposals including a CV, a research proposal + budget (2 PAGE MAXIMUM, not including budget) should be submitted via this link by September 30, 2023.
