Call for Proposals
Moynihan Summer Research Grants –
University Graduate Students
This year the Moynihan
Institute’s Middle Eastern Studies Program will grant awards to PhD and MA
candidates from any discipline to support field research in the Middle East
during the summer of 2020. Any student enrolled in a PhD or MA 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, and proposals will be
evaluated on the basis of (i) originality and significance of the proposed
research/study, (ii) organization and clarity of the proposal, (iii)
appropriateness and feasibility of the research/study plan in relation to the
student's background and qualifications, and (iv) cost effectiveness.
You may apply
for more than one summer grant from the Moynihan Institute, but you will not
receive more than one in a given year from the Institute. 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, February 27, 2020 at 11:59 pm EST
