Graduate Fellows

The Graduate Student Fellows Program is a competitive grant program for graduate students in College of Arts & Sciences social science departments. Applicants have completed all course requirements, passed qualifying exams, and are at the proposal preparation or research stage.

We are particularly interested in supporting pilot projects designed to increase the chances of securing external funding support as well as field research, data acquisition, travel, and other research costs essential to successful completion of research required for MA or PhD degrees.

Grant requests may be up to $1000.

Albert E. Smith Awards

The Albert E. Smith (AES) Fund provides funds to both graduate student and faculty to support innovative social science research related to Sustainability, Security, and Survival in a New Nuclear Age. See our our Albert E. Smith Awards page for more information.

Grants requests may be up to $5,000 for faculty members and up to $2,000 for graduate students.

Scholar Awards

The Scholars program is a competitive grant program to support research activities of tenure-track faculty in social science departments. We are particularly interested in projects involving the participation of graduate and/or undergraduate students in collaborative research roles.

Grant requests may be up to $4000.

Seed Awards

The Seed fund provides start-up funds for planning research activities involving tenure-track faculty from one or more social science departments and colleagues from other fields or universities. We anticipate that external grant funding secured with support of CARTSS Seed Funds would allow reimbursement of the Seed Fund grant to support other scholars.

Grants may be requested up to $4,000.

Proposals are due by midnight February 28, 2014.
