Undergraduate Seed Grant

CAPS undergraduate research seed grants are available to juniors and seniors who are conducting research on modern (post-Civil War) American politics and who are being advised by or taking a class with a member of the CAPS executive committee. The maximum value of the grant is $250. To apply for a CAPS undergraduate seed grant, send an e-mail to caps@gov.harvard.edu. The e-mail should briefly describe your project and provide a budget detailing the research-related expenses for which you need support. Your e-mail application will be circulated to a small committee of CAPS faculty, and a decision will be made quickly, usually within a matter of days. There is no application deadline, students may apply anytime but please note that review times can vary throughout the year, you are strongly encouraged to apply as far in advance as possible of needing the funding.
