    Tenth Decade Project

    Launched in 2014, the Tenth Decade Project is a ten-year initiative that aims to focus attention on and celebrate the centennial of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs in 2024. Grant funding associated with the Tenth Decade Project operationalizes a defined goal of the Maxwell Academic Strategic Plan to “promote research involving faculty on innovative, high impact projects, applying social science methods and data analysis to address grand, global challenges such as democracy and civic engagement, inequality, urban poverty and development, governance and security, environmental change, and health policy.”

    Dean's Office Summer Project Assistantships

    Launched in 2004, the Dean’s Office Summer Project Assistantship Program provides summer funding to Maxwell faculty to support a graduate assistant on a project for the purpose of conducting preliminary research for and/or preparation of a proposal for external project funding in the subsequent year. To date, the Maxwell School has invested approximately $175,000 in this program, resulting in over $3.2 million in related sponsored awards.

    Andrew Berlin Family National Security Research Fund

    The Institute for Security Policy and Law (SPL)—a collaboration between Maxwell and the SU College of Law—awards grants through the Berlin Fund to faculty and student teams that promote research on salient topics in security studies, including national security, homeland security, and human security. Funds can be used to cover the costs of conducting and disseminating research.
