The Dirksen Congressional Center invites applications for grants to fund research on congressional leadership and the U.S. Congress. Awards range from a few hundred dollars to $3,500. Stipends will be awarded to individuals (not organizations) on a competitive basis.
Grants will normally extend for one year. In some circumstances, the Center will make more than one award to a single individual in consecutive years, but not more than three awards to the same person in a five-year period.
Complete information about what kind of research projects are eligible for consideration, what could a Congressional Research Award pay for, application procedures, and how recipients are selected may be found at The Center's Web site: http://www.dirksencenter.org/print_grants_CRAs.htm
