Call for Proposals for Summer Research Grants

Middle Eastern Studies:

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. Students who received a MESP summer research grant in the last two academic years are not eligible to apply. Complete guidelines are available at:The Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, 346 Eggers Hall

Bharati and South Asia Summer Research Grant:

The South Asia Center announces the 27th Annual Bharati Memorial Award competition for the summer of 2020 (or AY 2020-21) for grants leading to doctoral dissertation research. Students in PhD programs in the Maxwell School are preferred. Students in other programs may apply, and we will fund them if other funding becomes available. We are especially interested in supporting pre-dissertation research, although short-term dissertation research can qualify. We anticipate awarding 1-5 grants for 2020. Only projects concerning South Asia are eligible. Previous recipients of this or other grants awarded through the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs are eligible, but not top priority.

Grants will range from $500 to a maximum of $1500.

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.

These awards are funded by a generous donation in honor of Professor Agehananda Bharati, Syracuse University professor of anthropology for 30 years, Ford/Maxwell Professor of South Asian Studies, and a recipient of the Chancellor’s Citation for Exceptional Academic Achievement.  Professor Bharati was a world-renowned expert in the cultural anthropology of South Asia, including the field of tantric studies.
