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 recently received Kroc funding are eligible to reapply, but must list prior Kroc grants and comment briefly on the benefits that have flowed from them. Applicants who have recently been awarded Kroc funding must also demonstrate a significant need for additional funding.

Applicants should also discuss how the Kroc funds currently being applied for will seed competitive external grant applications.
