Applicants should produce a brief description (1-2 pages) of the proposed research project, including potential funding sources. The proposal should specify whether the applicant seeks a course reduction with summer stipend or just summer stipend.

In addition, a curriculum vitae should be included with the application, along with a list of any previous proposals submitted for external funding, to whom they were submitted, the amount, and whether they were successful.

Selection Criteria

Selection of the Policy Research Scholars will be made by a selection committee consisting of GW faculty. Selection criteria include the importance of the research topic, quality of the proposal and the probability of securing external funding.
