Sciences Po

The Princeton University-Sciences Po Collaborative Research Grants program is designed to provide “seed-corn” support for interactions between researchers at both institutions to build the basis for new research and teaching initiatives and proposals for external funding, to help sustain and expand collaborative activity.

Call for Proposals 

Each university will provide its own lead investigator with an equivalent amount of funds that can be spent over the course of the grant period on travel, accommodations, workshops, facilities use and other expenses related to meetings or the preparation of external funding proposals, as specified at the time of the proposal.


A Joint Governance Committee comprised of faculty and senior administrators from both universities will review and consider proposals for awards.  Refer here for the list of the Committee members on the Princeton side.

Grants will be awarded according to a two-tier structure. Tier 1 seed grants will be awarded in the amount of US $10,000 for up to two years. Tier 2 grants can be awarded for exceptional projects in amounts up to US $90,000 over a three-year period.

Please direct any questions to Aly Kassam-Remtulla (, Associate Provost for International Affairs and Operations.
