Small grants

SCEW offers small grants of up to $2,500 to support research – and research-related activities – relevant to social or cultural evolution. We will consider any application that fits this description, for which sufficient funds are not already available to you, although we prioritize funding early-career researchers. (Applications must detail all other funding available to you that could be used for this purpose.) Research-related activities can include the dissemination of research (e.g., travel to conferences) as well as primary research. 

Please note that we have spent our small-grants budget for the 2019–2020 academic year, but hope to start accepting new applications in the Fall of 2020. 

Application
To apply, follow this link. You must either be a Penn faculty member affiliated with SCEW or have the support of such an individual. In the latter case, please include a letter of support in your application. Other documents required include a one-page proposal, a budget, and a CV. Applications can be submitted at any time and will be reviewed monthly. Please address enquiries to Gareth Roberts.
