The American Political Science Association has awarded $41,462 in Spring Centennial Center Research Grants to seventeen research projects. These seventeen winning projects were selected from a highly competitive field of seventy applications with the assistance of a panel of fifteen APSA members who volunteered to serve as judges.
APSA’s Spring Centennial Center Research Grants are awarded each year to political scientists in non-tenure track or contingent positions, faculty located in departments that do not grant PhDs, and to graduate students in Political Science. “We recognize that not all of our members have equal access to research funding through their institutions, and we are proud to be able to offer these grants to help those members engage in exciting research that they otherwise may not have been able to afford to do,” said Dr. Sean Delehanty, the Associate Director of the Centennial Center for Political Science and Public Affairs, who manages the Spring Centennial Center Research Grants program.
The seventeen projects selected for these grants encompass work from all subfields of political science, dealing with subjects as diverse as American electoral politics, environmental refuges in India and Romania, economic sanctions, and the political writings of the acclaimed playwright, Loraine Hansberry. Each project team has provided an abstract that summarizes the work they will be carrying out as well as the names and photographs of individual project members. APSA is proud to support this work and wishes to offer each of these scholars a well-deserved congratulations.
