UNITED STATES STUDIES CENTRE SMALL GRANTS PROGRAM
The United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney seeks proposals to develop and deliver research projects on topics aligned with the Centre’s research strategy.
The United States Studies Centre is a university-based research centre, dedicated to the rigorous analysis of American foreign policy, economics, politics and culture. The Centre is a national resource, that builds Australia’s awareness of the dynamics shaping America and their implications for Australia.

We anticipate making a small number of awards at a maximum of A$25,000 each (including GST) between now and 30 June 2022.
