Grants for Kroc Institute Core Faculty

For the academic year of 2023-24, the Kroc Institute offers grants of up to $5,000 to its core faculty 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 for conference attendance, to fund public events or to supplement faculty salary. Visiting Research Fellows and Faculty Fellows are not eligible to apply.)

To apply, please submit:

  • A cover letter and up-to-date CV
  • A proposal (three pages maximum) stating the project goals, research plan, budget, and the fit of the project with peace studies
  • A list of previous Kroc grants awarded in the last three years with details of the outputs from such funding
  • If the grant applied for is intended as seed money to promote a future external grant funding application, please provide details

Applications must be submitted by May 1. Kroc Institute core faculty grants are made at the recommendation of the Research Committee and approved by the Director.

The duration of the grant is 12 months from its approval. Successful applicants are expected to provide the Research Committee with a report on their use of the funds awarded at the end of the 12-month funding period. Grant-holders should also credit Kroc Institute funding in publications arising from the grant and details of such publications should be forwarded to the chair of the Research Committee. 

In awarding grants, the Research Committee may give preference to applications that are closely aligned to the research interests of the Kroc Institute. The Committee may also give preference to applicants who have not recently received a research grant from the Kroc Institute.
