Call for Proposals

Goekjian and Perryman/Middle Eastern Studies Program Research Grants


Attention Syracuse University Graduate Students

This year the Moynihan Institute’s Middle Eastern Studies Program (MESP) will grant awards to PhD and MA candidates from any discipline to support research concerning the Middle East.  Any student enrolled in an MA or PhD program at Syracuse University may apply. The awards can be used to undergo advanced language training, gather data and increase competitiveness of future proposals for funding. 

The awards are competitive. Proposals will be judged on the basis of (i) the quality of the proposed research, (ii) the organization and thoughtfulness of the proposal, and (iii) the appropriateness and feasibility of the research plan in relation to the student's background and qualifications.

You may apply for more than one grant from the Moynihan Institute, but no more than one award will be given by the Moynihan Institute per year per student. Awards are ranked separately, so if your proposal is accepted by more than one committee, you will be awarded the better opportunity. If you win an award this year, you may apply for this or another award next year.

DEADLINE: Thursday, April 1, 2021 at 11:59 pm EDT
