Faculty Research Funding Opportunities
The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center supports a competitive research grant program open to Dartmouth College faculty for research and academic conferences on issues in public policy and all topics in the social sciences. The Rockefeller Center Director, the Associate Dean for the Social Sciences, and the other members of the Rockefeller Center's Faculty Council review applications and select the most promising prospects for funding.
Grants typically range from $5,000-$25,000 in size, but the Reiss Grant may be as much as $30,000. For all grants, the Project Director (PD) must be a tenured or tenure-track member of the Arts & Sciences Faculty. Visiting faculty are not eligible. Collaborators may be Dartmouth faculty or scholars from other institutions. Compensation for Project Directors and collaborators is not available.
Proposals are reviewed by the Faculty Council. The deadline dates for year 2013-2014 submission are Tuesday, October 1, 2013 and Tuesday, April 1, 2014. (Please submit applications to Jane DaSilva via email before midnight on the deadline date.)
Please note: Starting in year 2014-2015, we will only award grants in the spring.
