CIRS seeks to stimulate the collection of reliable data and the production of sound analysis, with the goal of exploring questions related to the topic using empirically-grounded, theoretically informed research. Award recipients are expected to become active participants in the CIRS research initiative on the issue. This may include travel to Doha for Working Group meetings, public talks, or authorship of a chapter or article for publication. The maximum amount per grant award is US $25,000 to be used over the course of a one-year research progression.
Proposal submissions are due September 15, 2014. For inquiries and grant application submissions, please contact cirsgrants@georgetown.
