Kroc Faculty/Faculty Fellow Research Grants

The Kroc Institute offers grants of up to $5,000 to Kroc faculty and faculty fellows to enhance current research or initiate new research projects broadly related to peace studies.

Grants may be requested for archival or field research; research or editorial assistance; assistance for data collection or translation; or other research-related expenses. (Grants may not be used to fund public events or to supplement faculty salary.)

To apply, please submit:

  • A cover letter and up-to-date CV
  • A proposal (3 pages maximum) stating the project goals, research plan, budget, and the fit of the project with peace studies.

Applications must be submitted by January 1 or May 1. The duration of the grant is 12 months from its approval.

Kroc faculty/faculty fellow grants are made at the recommendation of the Research Committee and approved by the Director. Selection criteria include: quality of the research proposal; relevance of the proposal to peace research; and potential of the proposal to attract further funding.

Applicants who have received a faculty/faculty fellow grant in the previous academic year are eligible to reapply, but should demonstrate a significant need for additional funding.
