The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) announced the recipients of its annual Challenges to Democracy Grant program. In its inaugural year, this grant program devotes $350,000 in support of HKS faculty as well as doctoral and postdoctoral student research that explores both the ideals of democracy and its often-imperfect practice in the real world. This year, the Ash Center will fund five HKS faculty research projects; four HKS faculty-led seminars; two doctoral fellowships for HKS and other Harvard graduate students; and one postdoctoral fellowship.
