The Lewis Center supports research that is aligned with its initiative areas: transportation, environment, housing and economic development.
Each fall, the Lewis Center allocates approximately 6 graduate student awards of $1,000 to $4,500 each in support of theses, Applied Policy Projects (APP's), client projects, Applied Management Research (AMR's), and law school related research projects in these fields of study. Priority is given for research focused on policy issues relevant to California.
The grants may be used for research costs such as data, software, travel for data collection, production of final report, and undergraduate research assistance. The program will not cover graduate student salaries, tuition remission, meals, or gift cards.
The posted deadline for academic year 2011-2010 is October 21, 2011, and the application procedure will be widely publicized at the beginning of fall quarter. New this year: students who engage in early research are welcome to apply for Lewis Center support anytime ahead of deadline, to be evaluated on a rolling basis.
Proposals should include the student’s name, department, phone and e-mail addresses; a one-page proposal containing an overview of the topic, methods, and relevancy to regional policy issues; and a letter of recommendation from one faculty member.
