Call for Proposals

Moynihan Summer Research Grants – Middle East

Attention Syracuse 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
