APSA Announces the 2022 Summer Centennial Center Research Grant Winners

The American Political Science Association (APSA) is pleased to announce that it has awarded 41 Summer Centennial Center Research Grants to APSA members in order to fund research and collaborative projects aimed at improving the discipline. These 41 grants, which were selected from a highly competitive field of 148 applications, amount to $123,634 in funding support. The winning projects will help political scientists of all career stages from institutions across the United States and around the world to carry out innovative work that will contribute to our understanding of some of the most pressing issues facing the profession and the world around us.

APSA’s Summer Centennial Center Research Grants are awarded each year to individual and group projects submitted by APSA members. Applicants have the option to apply for any of the 12 specialized grant funds that make up the overall award pool and projects are selected by a panel of volunteer judges drawn from mid- and later-career APSA members. “We were doubly fortunate this year to have a large pool of grant funds to draw from and a wealth of exciting applications to choose from,” said Dr. Steven Rathgeb Smith, APSA’s Executive Director. “APSA is proud to support our members in all aspects of their work, and the Summer Centennial Center Research Grants embody our commitment to doing everything we can to ensure that our members will be able to conduct exciting research, regardless of their institutions or career statuses. We are very excited to be supporting these 41 projects and we wish all of our grantees the best of luck with their research.”
