Purpose: Using funds from the Grace T. Brown Endowment in combination with PSC overhead, PSC will provide a fund of up to $50,000 each year to support PSC researchers whose projects do not qualify for endowments targeted toward international projects. Priority will be given to domestic-themed projects and research.
Eligibility: PSC trainees (predoctoral students, postdoctoral fellows), and PSC Research Affiliates appointed prior to September 1 of the RFA year are eligible to apply.
Support: Applicable uses of funds include, but are not limited to: travel, salary support, data procurement, data collection, and coordination with colleagues, both domestically and internationally. Funds may also be used to support mini-conferences or workshops, or to provide student salaries for working directly with faculty on research projects.
Application Procedure: Small Grant RFAs are generally issued in December. To streamline the process of applying for PSC's six endowment funds, we use a single Small Grants Application Form for all funds. The PSC Advisory Committee evaluates all proposed activities and determines the most appropriate funding source for those accepted. The Guidelines for PSC Small Grants provides additional information on each fund. You may also consult a list of funded activities in prior years.
