Summer Collaborative Research Grants in the Social Sciences

Applications for the Corbett and Goldhammer grant programs are due by Friday, March 2, 2018.

The Alta S. Corbett Grant in Political Science, and the Bernard Goldhammer Grant in Economics and Natural Resources are intended to support collaborative research projects by Reed faculty and students. Under unusual circumstances, more than one student may be involved in a single project with a faculty member, but one-to-one is the normal format. For information on student and faculty stipends for 2018, please contact the Chairs of Economics or Political Science.

Any faculty member who is continuing at Reed (or on sabbatical or leave) for the following fall semester is eligible to apply. Incoming faculty may be considered if they are in residence at Reed over the summer. Student collaborators must normally be returning to Reed (or going on an approved study abroad program) for the following fall, however, applications involving graduating seniors will be considered when the reasons for choosing a graduate are compelling. Juniors should note this program is not intended as an opportunity to begin work on the senior thesis during the summer. Grant applications involving juniors will be asked to explain the relationship between the proposed research and the anticipated thesis. Students who have previously received a grant from the Corbett, Goldhammer or Ruby program may not apply for these grants.

For information on selection and requirements please visiti the website.

In order to be considered for funding in the summer, a complete application should be submitted electronically before 12 noon on Friday, March 2, 2018, to Julie Shannon at Late applications will not be accepted. Award decisions will be made by a committee appointed by the chairs of the Political Science and Economics Departments. Applicants will be notified as soon as a decision has been made, usually within three weeks.
