January 22, 2013,
Volume 59, No. 18
The Penn Social Science and Policy Forum is pleased to announce a competition for small grants to assist faculty members to bring policy makers to campus to present their work, discuss policy-relevant issues, and engage with undergraduate, graduate, or professional students in social science courses. Funds are restricted to reimbursable travel expenses, including transit, meals, and, if necessary, overnight accommodations. All expenses shall not exceed $500 per visit. Applicants may apply at any time; grants will be considered on a rolling basis while funds are available.
Standing faculty at Penn in any of the 12 schools are eligible to apply for funds.
Proposals should include the proposed date of the visit, a short statement of how the visitor would contribute to the course (not to exceed three paragraphs), a single page CV or biographical statement describing the proposed visitor’s expertise and a copy of the course syllabus.
Please submit applications as a single PDF to the Penn Social Science and Policy Forum at firstname.lastname@example.org
