The Program on Negotiation’s Next Generation Grants Program supports research in negotiation and conflict resolution by non-tenured faculty and doctoral students. Faculty and students from any school or department within PON’s inter-university consortium (Harvard, MIT, Tufts Fletcher School) may apply. Post-doctoral students with a formal affiliation to Harvard or one of our consortium schools are also welcome to apply.
Awards will be for specific research projects, not for general student support or tuition payments. Doctoral student grants are limited to $5,000. Non-tenured, tenure-track faculty grants are limited to $10,000, of which no more than $5,000 should be for personnel. Scholars may request funding to cover direct costs for research such as subject compensation, remuneration for required support personnel, travel costs for data collection, transcription, project specific software, and other direct research expenses. (These funds are not for faculty salary support or travel to present research.)
Successful proposals should outline research that will lead to journal publication in the leading outlets of the discipline of the author. PON’s goal is to support new scholarship, with specific focus on the next generation of scholars in negotiation and conflict resolution.
Proposals will be reviewed twice a year. Upcoming application deadlines are Tuesday, November 19, 2019 and Thursday, May 21, 2020. PON has the goal to make decisions within one month of the deadline.
