Overview

A primary purpose of the proposed Carsey School of Public Policy is to support faculty scholarship that informs public policy or contributes to its design, implementation, and evaluation. To that end, the Carsey Institute, continuing its role as the primary locus of research within the new school, announces, the Carsey Summer Scholars Program. Up to five fellowships of $10,000 each will be provided to members of the UNH faculty in the summer of 2014 for the purpose of producing scholarly works in the form of peer-reviewed manuscripts, conference proceedings, exhibits and artistic productions, or submission of proposals for extramural funding.

Applications

          Details for 2015 will be when they are available. Questions may be directed to Deputy Director Curt Grimm at the Carsey Institute: Curt.Grimm@unh.edu.
