The Negotiating Agreement in Congress Research Grants initiative, which ran from December 2016 to January 2019, provided funding to two cohorts of researchers with diverse backgrounds and sets of expertise to study legislative negotiations in Congress. It is no longer accepting applications.
From 2015 to 2017, the Anxieties of Democracy program invited internationally-renowned democracy experts to New York for a residency at the Social Science Research Council. The annual Democracy Fellows contributed to the Anxieties of Democracy mission by holding seminars for young scholars, and by delivering a keynote public lecture during their residence.
The Abe Fellowship is designed to encourage international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern. The program seeks to foster the development of a new generation of researchers who are interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance and who are willing to become key members of a bilateral and global research network built around such topics.
