Graduate Student Research Grants (2022-2023)

The Center for the Study of the United States (CSUS) in Partnership with the Fulbright Program at Tel Aviv University invites applications for our graduate student research grants for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Prospective applicants may come from any department (or discipline) that addresses American politics, society, economics, history, law, gender studies, public policy, international relations, environmental studies, media or culture (including literature, film, art, and music). Eligible candidates may specialize in either contemporary or historic aspects of these fields. This includes comparative or transnational projects that have a strong focus on the United States.

 

Research proposals can span any subject matter or period related to the United States. However, we are especially interested in promoting research that deals with one of our annual themes: Democracy and Technology, and/or Populism - Original proposals that explore these issues through any perspective or discipline are highly encouraged.

 

The one-time grant of 3,000-4,000 NIS will be awarded to qualified researchers. We are seeking to encourage innovative and pioneering research that incorporates different methodological approaches. The grants are highly competitive and will be awarded based on the potential, focus and clarity of the research proposal and academic merits of the prospective candidates. 

  • Grant recipients are asked to take part in CSUS's activities throughout the year and expected to participate in our faculty-graduate student seminar (five annual meetings) devoted to exploring our annual themes (exact dates TBA).

  • Grant recipients might be invited at the end of the year to publish original research (in Hebrew) resulting from our seminar in one of CSUS's print or online platforms.  

  • The prize committee reserves the right not to allocate all of the awards in the coming year. 

Eligibility 

  • Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education in Israel as doctoral candidates or MA students in a thesis-track. Doctoral students at any stage of their research are eligible to apply as long as they have not submitted their dissertation yet.

  • Former grant recipients are invited to apply. However, preference will be given to candidates who have not previously been awarded a CSUS research grant. 

Applicants Must Submit: 

  • Research proposal for their project (3 pages max.)

  • CV (2 pages max.) 

  • Academic transcript (with courses and grades). Doctoral candidates can submit transcripts of their Master’s degree; for all others, most recent graduate transcript is sufficient.  

Deadline for submission of all application materials: December 1, 2022 

Application materials should be sent by e-mail to: uscenter@tauex.tau.ac.il 

Good Luck!

Graduate-Student Publishing Grants (2022)

American Politics, Society, Law, Economy & Culture

Applications for Graduate Student Publishing Grants for 2022 are now closed. 

The Center for the Study of the United States (CSUS) in Partnership with the Fulbright Program at Tel Aviv University invites applications for our new graduate- student publishing grants, aimed at promoting successful academic publishing for early career scholars. 

 

Prospective applicants may come from any department (or discipline) that addresses American politics, society, economics, history, law, gender studies, public policy, international relations, environmental studies, media or culture (including literature, film, art, and music). Eligible candidates may specialize in either contemporary or historic aspects of these subjects. This includes comparative or transnational projects that have a strong focus on the United States. 

 

The one-time grant of 2,000 NIS will be awarded to graduate students who submit a draft article prepared for an academic journal, book chapter for an edited volume, or a draft chapter from an academic monograph in progress. The purpose of this grant is to  encourage and support peer-reviewed academic publishing of original research. Therefore, we are seeking revised and refined scholarship in the final stages that is ready (or nearly ready) for submission to an academic journal/academic press, rather than early drafts of doctoral dissertations, journal articles in initial stages of preparation, or unrevised seminar papers.  

 

The grants are highly competitive and will be awarded based on the potential for publication, innovation in research, and quality of argument and writing.   

 

  • The prize committee reserves the right not to allocate all of the awards in the coming year.  

Eligibility 

Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education in Israel as doctoral candidates (not just Tel Aviv University). Doctoral students at any stage of their research are eligible to apply as long as they can submit scholarship ready for publication.  

Applicants Must Submit: 

 

  • Draft of article or book chapter being submitted for publication (or recently accepted or published)    

  • CV (2 pages max.)  

  • Articles/chapters that have been published or accepted for publication in the past year (2021-2022) may also be submitted. 

  • Co-authored articles/chapters can be submitted only if all co-authors meet the eligibility requirements. In such cases the grant will be shared.  

  • Each applicant may submit only one article/chapter. 

  • Scholarship in English and Hebrew may be submitted. 

Deadline for submission of all application materials: November 1, 2022 

Application materials should be sent by e-mail to: uscenter@tauex.tau.ac.il 

Good Luck!
