Each year the Center for the Study of Representation awards up to six research grants of up to $500 each to U.C. Berkeley undergraduate students who are conducting research on an aspect of American politics, including public opinion, electoral behavior, civic participation, government institutions, social movements, and public policy. Students from a broad range of disciplines are encouraged to apply. The grant may be used to cover research expenses such as traveling to Washington, DC, to interview lawmakers; buying a dataset; or covering photocopying costs at an archive.
This grant is made possible by a generous donation by Bill and Patrice Brandt.
