JHU Faculty: Apply for an AY 23–24 SNF Agora  Faculty Grant

The SNF Agora Institute invites Johns Hopkins faculty members from across the university to apply for an  SNF Agora  Faculty Grant. The grant program encourages and supports work by JHU faculty that is complementary to SNF Agora's mission—including scholarship, convenings, public engagement, policy briefings, and more. SNF Agora wants to support and amplify this work through its institute, and foster faculty collaboration across the university on ideas and efforts that could reinvigorate global democracy and the civic spaces that fuel it.  

The SNF Agora Faculty Grants Program typically provides smaller grants (less than $5,000) to support faculty  work but  may also provide one larger grant per year  with  up to $20,000  in funding. The grant period is up to 12 months from the selected start date, which must be July 1, 2023, or later.

Last year, SNF Agora awarded nine grants to faculty from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Advanced International Studies, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the Carey Business School. The grants funded research projects on public perceptions of gerrymandering, the role of religion in the advancement of public health during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how racial inclusiveness shapes the legitimacy of political institutions, among other topics; a conference on the threats to democracy posed by both online data collection and regulatory action; and a multimedia art and storytelling project, called "99 Clay Vessels," that centers the stories of American Muslim women who are justice activists.

Applications for AY 23–24 are due by 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 2.  For more information about eligibility and selection criteria, or to apply for a grant, visit the  Faculty Grants Program  page on the SNF Agora website or email <snfagoraapplications@jhu.edu > with specific questions.
