Sciences Po Transatlantic Research Fund

The Sciences Po Transatlantic Research Fund (Sciences Po TRF) aims to provide Sciences Po researchers the leverage to initiate fruitful joint research with a U.S. university that carries the potential to expand into larger projects.

Late 2021, an initial donation of $70,000 was allocated to create the Sciences Po Transatlantic Research Fund, to support projects between researchers from Sciences Po who will benefit and contribute to a partnership with U.S. universities.

The Sciences Po Transatlantic Research Fund (Sciences Po TRF) Call for Proposals

The Sciences Po TRF Call for Proposals aims to encourage Sciences Po researchers to engage in transatlantic dialogue and collaboration with peers in any U.S. university.  Our ambition is to amplify Sciences Po transatlantic collaboration through research.

The Sciences Po TRF Call for Proposals is open to full-time officers of instruction of professorial rank, from all disciplines at Sciences Po.

The Sciences Po American Foundation will fund four projects up to $15,000 for travel, materials, technological support, and other expenses related to the design and implementation of the project. 

We accept applications in all subject areas. However, applications in the following priority areas are particularly encouraged:

  • Role of digital technology in our societies, including digital Humanities
  • Climate change and sustainable development
  • Global politics and International Relations
  • Democracy and Human Rights

Special consideration will also be given to projects that aim to promote sustainable relationships between Sciences Po and the chosen U.S. university.

Each project should have a maximum duration of 18 months.
