Graduate Student Research Grants (2020)
American Politics, Policy, Society, Economy and Culture
The Center for the Study of the United States in Partnership with the Fulbright Program at Tel Aviv University invites applications for graduate student research grants for 2020. Prospective applicants may come from any department (or discipline) at Tel Aviv University that addresses American politics, society, economics, history, law, gender studies, public policy, international relations, environmental studies, media or culture (including literature, film, art, theatre, and music). Eligible candidates may specialize in either contemporary or historic aspects of these questions. This includes comparative or transnational projects that have a strong focus on the U.S.
Research proposals can span any subject matter or period. However, we are especially interested in promoting research that deals with our annual topic: The 2020 U.S. presidential election. As such, original proposals that explore the characteristics, circumstances, causes, and implications of the Trump presidency, broadly understood, and deal with contemporary American politics and society, are especially encouraged.
Grant Amounts: 3,000-5,000 NIS.
- Applicants must be enrolled in Tel Aviv University as graduate students in a thesis-track (in either an M.A. or Ph.D. program).
Applicants Must Submit:
- Research proposal for their project (2 pages max.)
- CV (2 pages max.)
- Academic transcript (with courses and grades). Doctoral candidates can submit transcripts of their Master’s degree; for all others, the most recent graduate transcript is sufficient.
Application materials should be sent by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for submission of all application materials: January 20, 2020.
