Building on the recommendations of the American Political Science Association’s 2013 Task Force on Negotiating Agreement in Politics, Negotiating Agreement in Congress Research Grants provide funding to a cohort of researchers with diverse backgrounds and sets of expertise. The ultimate goal of the initiative is twofold: to inspire a new generation of legislative negotiation scholars, and to create research with practical implications for policymakers.
Each grant recipient is awarded up to $10,000 of funding for up to one year of research and writing.
This initiative is possible due to generous support from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation’s Madison Initiative.
