The Bucknell Institute for Public Policy has several resources to support faculty scholarship and curricular development in public-policy focused areas. The following grant programs are available for faculty engaging in research or teaching consistent with the mission of the Institute.

Small Grants to Support Faculty Scholarship

A limited amount of funds are available throughout the academic year to defray faculty expenses for research activities (e.g., travel to professional meetings, field research, acquisitions of datasets or other relevant materials) related to the mission of the Institute. The maximum grant award is $400. Faculty who wish to apply for these grants should submit a short (roughly 1 page) application to Meg Martin (meg.martin@bucknell.edu) at least three weeks in advance of the proposed activity. The application should include a description of the proposed activity, a discussion of its relevance to the mission of the Institute, a proposed budget, and a list of other sources of funding received and/or requested.

Funds for Co-sponsorships

The Institute is interested in co-sponsoring speakers and events related to its goal of providing public education on contemporary policy issues. Requests should include a description of the event, its relevance to the mission of the Institute, and a list other sources of funding received and/or requested.

Summer grants for scholarship and curricular development projects.

The Institute offers summer funding opportunities to support scholarship related to the Institute's mission, and to support the development of policy-focused courses and curricula. Please see the call for proposals (pdf). Proposals for summer scholarly and curriculum development funds are due by Monday, April 13, 2015.
