Browne Center Research Grants

The Christopher H. Browne Center for International Politics invites applications from Penn standing faculty and graduate students for research grants. The Center is interested in supporting scholarly research projects that are related to all areas of international relations.

Faculty applicants may request a maximum of $5,000 to cover expenses directly related to research. Student applicants may request $3,000. The grant can be used, among other things, to support field research, to gain advanced training in research methods, or to hire graduate students as research assistants. In appropriate cases, grant recipients will be asked to present their research findings in a Browne Center seminar.

We invite all faculty and graduate students at Penn whose research interests fit within the broad mission of the Browne Center to submit applications. Applications should be no longer than five pages (single-spaced) and include the following:

1) A description of the research project

2) A budget explaining the expenses the grant is to cover and a statement of all current and pending support for the research project

3) A curriculum vitae


Applications are considered on a rolling basis. Please send to:
