The Smith Richardson Foundation seeks to contribute to important public debates and to address serious public policy challenges facing the United States, help ensure the vitality of social, economic, and governmental institutions, and assist with the development of effective policies that enable the U.S. to compete internationally and advance its interests and values abroad.
To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its annual Strategy and Policy Fellows grant competition. Through the program, at least three research grants of $60,000 will be awarded in support of research by young scholars and policy thinkers working in the area(s) of American foreign policy, international relations, international security, military policy, and diplomatic and military history that leads to the writing of a book.
To be eligible, applicants must have a PhD and be employed at or an affiliate of a U.S. academic institution or a think tank.
Only single-author book projects will be considered.
See the Smith Richardson Foundation website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of past fellows.
