Initiative on Cities Early Stage Urban Research Awards

The Initiative on Cities is pleased to announce our Spring 2019 Request for Proposals for our Early Stage Urban Research Awards page. These seed grants support research addressing urban challenges and urban populations in the US and abroad. This year, we are particularly interested in proposals related to community engaged research, international projects, and projects related to the Boston region. Proposals covering other topic areas are also welcome.

 Past awardees are eligible to apply for new research projects unrelated to prior awards.

Awards are open to all BU schools and successful proposals will receive seed funding of up to $10,000.  For more information on eligibility and guidelines for submission, please visit our Early Stage Urban Research Awards page. Proposal deadlines are due Sunday, March 17, to Fatima at
