APSA’s Spring Centennial Center Research Grants – Applications are open!

The spring cycle of Centennial Center Research Grants supports research in all fields of political science. The intent of these grants is to provide funding opportunities for research conducted by:

  • Political scientists in non-tenure track or contingent positions who are ineligible for departmental funding.
  • Political science faculty of all ranks who are employed in departments that do not grant PhDs, including community college faculty.

APSA offers a total of $40,000 in funding for these grants annually – individual grant proposals may not exceed $2,500. Grant recipients are determined through a peer-review process.

Applications require just a CV, one-paragraph abstract, short research statement, and budget outlining costs to be covered by grant.

Eligible Costs for the 2022 Cycle Include:

  • Research costs associated with data collection, including costs of conducting interviews and surveys, access to archives, and more.
  • Salary support for PIs
  • Salary support for research assistants
  • Per diems regardless of location
  • Research software and hardware, including statistical software, productivity software, and devices necessary for scholars with disabilities to conduct their research.
  • And more! We recognize that APSA members may have research support needs not included in the above list. If you have a cost that is not listed here, please contact us at centennial@apsanet.org to confirm that the cost is eligible.
