The Fels Policy Research Initiative seeks to increase the visibility and impact of Penn’s policy-relevant research. Because policy topics characteristically span the disciplinary boundaries of the academy, FPRI’s Collaborative Working Group Grants will support the formation of faculty working groups that gather a variety of perspectives around a topic. The grants will support working groups designed to stimulate deeper discussion on neglected or emerging areas, develop new research ideas and agendas, and heighten awareness of the policy implications of research. We hope to accelerate exploration and early collaboration and to identify potential projects for further development. These grants, for up to $15,000, can be used to support a series of talks, a series of related workshops, or some other new collaboration made possible with funding.
