All Kroc faculty (joint appointments and full-time Kroc faculty) are eligible for research grants up to $5,000.
Grants may be requested for initiatives that seed new research projects or enhance current research work. Funding may be used for research workshops, travel, grant-writing, research assistance, and other activities. Applicants should demonstrate the fit of their proposal with peace studies.

To apply, please submit:

Kroc faculty grants are made at the recommendation of the Research Committee and with final approval of the Regan Director.
