The Public Policy concentration and the Taubman Center for American Politics and Policy are pleased to announce a new Research Grant Initiative to support undergraduates working on senior theses and capstone projects within the Public Policy concentration.
Awards can be used to support travel, supplies, fees, data collection, and other research-related costs associated with writing senior theses or completing capstone projects, and that are eligible for University reimbursement. The maximum amount to be awarded is $500. Actual amounts awarded will be based on the availability of funds and may be less than budget requests. Awards will be determined twice during the academic year.
Applications for the first round of grants for the 2017/2018 academic year are due by midnight, Monday, October 30, 2017. Fall awards will be determined by November 15. Spring applications are due midnight, Friday, March 3, 2018 and will be determined by April 1. Grant recipients may receive only one award from this initiative. Late applications will not be accepted.
Proposals should be emailed to Melissa Nicholaus at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Public Policy Grants Application” followed by the applicant’s last name. Applications must include:
Name and Project Title
Expected Project Completion Date
Semester for Grant Award (Fall or Spring)
