Research Support

A primary goal of the Stanford King Center on Global Development is to support Stanford faculty in their research efforts to improve policies and practices that positively impact those living in poverty. Among the programs designed to support these endeavors are junior faculty research grants and support for conferences and events.

Junior Faculty Research Grants

The Stanford King Center invites proposals from Stanford junior faculty members for small projects or for seed funding of new research on topics relevant to global development and poverty. Proposals will be accepted and considered twice yearly, in January and June. 

The application deadlines for the 2018-19 academic year are Monday, January 14, 2019 and Monday, June 3, 2019.

The proposed work may involve the broad range of disciplines in international development. These include but are not limited to earth sciences, economics, engineering, medicine, political science, policy, individually or in combination.

Expected seed funding for each project is up to $80,000.

Support for Conferences and Events

The King Center invites proposals from all Stanford faculty for conferences, lectures, workshops, or multi-day conferences on topics relevant to global development and poverty.  Proposals that bring together faculty in new ways are encouraged. Topics may involve the broad range of disciplines in international development, including but not limited to earth sciences, economics, engineering, medicine, political science, policy, individually or in combination.  Events may be academically oriented or aim to bring policymakers or private-sector leaders and academics together.

King Center staff will be available to assist with event planning and logistics.

Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis.
