American Political Science
Association Small Research Grant
DUE: FEB 2
• Applications for the 2010 cycle will be accepted from December 1, 2009 until February 1, 2010.
• Applicants must be APSA members at the time of application and when the funds are dispersed.
The APSA Small Research Grant Program supports research in all fields of political science. The intent of these grants is to support
the research of political scientists who are not employed at PhD-granting department in the field and to help further the careers of
these scholars. Grant recipients have been able to publish several books and book chapters, journal articles, working papers, and
conference presentations. They also report benefits to students, who have co-authored projects and worked as research assistants.
Several recipients were also able to use the APSA grant as "seed money" to get additional funding.
Funds may be used for such research activities as: travel to archives; travel to conduct interviews; administration and coding of
instruments; research assistance; and purchase of data-sets. While this list is merely illustrative, certain research activities are
specifically excluded from funding: travel to professional meetings; secretarial costs except for preparation of the final manuscripts
for publication; and salary support for the principal investigator.
FUNDING: A small number of these grants are awarded annually by the Council on the basis of a peer review process. Individual
grants do not exceed $2,500 and are not renewable.
