HKS Faculty Research Grants

The Ash Center seeks to fill a void in scholarship on democratic institutions that currently yields little practical application. How do we solve problems of collective action, institutional design, inclusion, lack of responsiveness, corruption, polarization, and distrust? How does government innovate to respond to constricting resources, natural and man-made disasters, and complex networks of public-private partnerships? The Ash Center seeks proposals from faculty working on these and other broad questions, with priority given to proposals within the topic areas outlined above. No faculty grants will be offered in the current call for applications.
