Deadline: Concept Note Due December 2, 2022
Category: Social Science; Foreign policy,
Carnegie Corporation of New York has launched a request for proposals for projects addressing one or both of the following themes: reimagining multilateral approaches to global challenges; and connecting domestic concerns with U.S. national security and foreign policy making.
Through a competitive process, a small number of proposals will be selected for one-time grants between $100,000 and $500,000. Projects may run up to 24 months. Grants will be recommended for support at either the June or September meeting of the Corporation’s board of trustees.
The foundation seeks research-based projects with the potential to generate knowledge and insights that inform practical solutions relevant to one or both aforementioned themes. Approaches might include, but are not limited to: illuminating and addressing connections between issues or policies that are usually siloed; applying an existing body of research and lessons learned to a different but relevant challenge; identifying and recommending ways to overcome barriers for governments or international institutions to implement new or improved policies, agreements, etc.; creating new datasets or using existing datasets in new ways; collecting and applying qualitative insights from various types of stakeholders through surveys, focus groups, task forces, etc.; and designing and implementing pilot projects with the potential to scale.
Projects are highly encouraged to: involve collaborations among American and foreign experts if the project is relevant to reimagining multilateralism; involve collaborations among experts on U.S. foreign policy and domestic policy if the project is relevant to connecting domestic concerns with U.S. national security and policy making; include participation by experts from underrepresented communities; and demonstrate leadership by mid-career experts.
Think tanks, university-based centers, and independent nongovernmental organizations are eligible to apply. Different centers/schools at the same university may each submit one concept note. Think tanks may submit one concept note for the entire institution. Applying organizations must be based in the United States but are encouraged, where applicable, to have international partners.
Concept notes are due December 2, 2022, and upon review, a small group of semifinalists will be invited for virtual interviews with Corporation staff. Finalists will be invited to submit a full funding proposal, due March 20, 2023.
Please contact Daniel Hadley if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
