Each year, the Project on Middle East Political Science announces a call for proposals for POMEPS Travel – Research – Engagement (TRE) grants. Awards of up to $3,000 will be offered to support research travel to the broader Middle East in support of an ongoing academic research project or the development of new research projects. Given the COVID-19 crisis and the unusual difficulty of conducting research in the region, we will consider proposals for research which does not involve travel to the Middle East. Proposals which do include travel should include a contingency plan in the event that travel is not possible. While there is a preference for junior scholars, defined as pre-tenure, the competition is open to academic political scientists at all career stages. Awards are not restricted to U.S. citizens or residents.
