Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science Research Grant

Harvard Graduate student affiliates may apply for funding to support ongoing or future research activities. These funds may supplement other grant programs and may be used for a wide variety of purposes, including international travel, survey development, human subjects and payments, supplies, technical services, and printing and publication costs. Please note that funds from this grant are not meant to be used for non-specialized research assistance or personal stipend. Crowdsourcing and research assistance for specialized tasks are acceptable uses for these funds. Harvard Graduate student affiliates who receive research grants are expected to be involved in the IQSS community. There is also an expectation that, when ready, grant recipients will submit a one- to three-page narrative report describing their research, which may be featured on the IQSS website.
