Funding Opportunities

Body

Scholar-in-Residence 

The Scholar-in-residence program provides space, funding, and support to an individual faculty scholar who needs dedicated time to work on a policy project. Scholars-in-residence typically spend one day per week at the PPC working in a quiet, collaborative, policy-focused environment – most residencies last one semester. If you’re interested in learning more, and potentially becoming a scholar-in-residence at the PPC, contact the PPC Director: Peter-Damiano@uiowa.edu or 319-353-6800.

 

Undergraduate Research Team Support

  • Find, hire, and help train students to join your team;
  • Fund student salaries and other research related expenses;
  • Receive training and support for mentoring undergraduate researchers;
  • Connect with other faculty who are leading undergraduate teams.
