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.

Students are encouraged to first pursue funding through Undergraduate Research Grants and The Weinberg College of Arts and Science

Interested students must submit an online application.  Students (excluding honors students) must also attach to the application:

  1. An unofficial transcript
  2. Resume
  3. 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

For questions, contact The Political Science Department (2nd floor, Scott Hall).
