Kuwait Program Research Fund accepting grant proposals
The Kennedy School of Government (KSG) has announced the second grant cycle for the Kuwait Program Research Fund. With support from the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science, a KSG faculty committee will consider applications for small one-year grants (up to $30,000) to support advanced research by Harvard University faculty members on issues of critical importance to Kuwait and the Gulf. Grants can be applied toward research assistance, travel, summer salary, and course buyout.
Priority will be given to research concerning water resources and management; oil and petrochemicals; the environment and pollution; and public health policy, although applications will be considered in other areas.
Collaborative research with Kuwaiti academics and educational institutions is encouraged. Recipients will be expected to travel to Kuwait during the period of the grant as a condition of the award. Travel expenses should be included in the budget submitted with the grant application.
There are no formal application forms. Inquiries and research proposals (not exceeding five pages), including a budget, and a curriculum vitae for senior researchers, may be sent to the director of the Middle East Initiative, KSG, 79 John F. Kennedy St., Cambridge, MA 02138. The deadline is Oct. 31.
