Application Information

Interested applicants should submit a CV and a letter of interest ideally one page and no longer than two through the form below. The letter should explain how the grant will make a difference in your ability either to advance your research or connect it to practice/policy. For example, the grant might enable you to expand the scope of an existing research project that has relevance to global security or policy, to take a project that is not currently directly relevant to global security or policy and move it in that direction, to present the work at a venue in the US or abroad that will enhance its prospects of uptake in the policy conversation, or to undertake travel that will allow you to discuss your work with policy makers.
