Ginsberg Research Grant
Ted and Cora Ginsberg Undergraduate Research Grant
Applications for a Ginsberg grant for summer and academic-year research are accepted on a rolling basis.
The Ted and Cora Ginsberg Undergraduate Research Grant supports undergraduate political science research conducted in collaboration with a faculty member. The project must be student initiated, and conducted with the mentorship of a political science faculty member. The research can occur during the summer or during the academic year and need not be conducted for credit.
Interested students should approach a faculty member to discuss a potential project. Funds can be applied toward students’ expenses related to undertaking the collaborative research including: summer living stipend (housing); transportation costs, such as student’s travel to research venues; materials, computer software; other. Grants are awarded to undergraduate students only.
Interested students must submit an online application. Students (excluding honors students) must also attach to the application:
- An unofficial transcript
- A 3-5 page description of the project that includes:
- The research topic
- The proposed research methodology (e.g. analysis of secondary literature, archival visits, field research, experimental research, etc.)
- A brief description of your background preparation for the research, including how you expect the research to further your intellectual development and political science education
- A budget
