The Dirksen Congressional Center announced that it will accept applications for grants to fund research on Congress. From the announcement:
The Center's first interest is to fund the study of the leadership in the Congress, both House and Senate. Topics could include external factors shaping the exercise of congressional leadership, institutional conditions affecting it, resources and techniques used by leaders, or the prospects for change or continuity in the patterns of leadership. In addition, the Center invites proposals about congressional procedures, such as committee operation or mechanisms for institutional change, and Congress and the electoral process.
Awards range from a few hundred dollars to $3,500. The deadline is March 1, 2011. Click here for more information.
