Important Notice

October 10, 2019


The Political Science (PS) program is in a transitional period. Research areas formerly funded by PS are covered by the Accountable Institutions and Behavior (AIB) or the Security and Preparedness (SAP) programs. Researchers are strongly encouraged to read the AIB and SAP program description and send proposals to these programs. If you are uncertain about which programs offer the best fit for your proposals, please contact the program officers (POs) of the AIB or SAP programs (as these POs also are responsible for the Political Science program).

Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants may be accessed via the Political Science Doctorate Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (PS DDRIG) program website.
