REAI grants open for applications

1 min read

The Real Estate Academic Initiative (REAI) at Harvard is offering its second round of grants of the academic year to support real estate and urban development research by Harvard faculty and students.

Grants range from $1,500 to $10,000 for student thesis research, and from $5,000 to $15,000 for faculty research. Supported research is broadly defined to include topics in business, economics, history, design, environment, law, political science, public health, sociology, and the sciences as they relate to the built environment.

This is a valuable opportunity not only for faculty but also for graduate and undergraduate students who may need funding for research, travel, or other costs related to thesis projects. The research committee reviews applications for grants on a rolling basis; the next application deadline is March 23. For more information, an online application, and examples of previous grants, visit the REAI website at
