ABOUT: Through a generous endowment provided by Lt. Gen. Brent Scowcroft, the Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs (SIIA) at the George Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University is able to offer grant awards each year to Texas A&M Faculty doing policy-relevant research on various aspects of international affairs. A panel of senior faculty members from the Bush School, the Bush Library, and other colleges on campus will review the applications and recommend funding to the Director of the Scowcroft Institute. Funding preference will be given to projects that will produce publishable research on an international affairs topic in an academic or policy journal or book, and based on the merit of the research topic and its potential contribution to scholarship. The application must include a detailed budget, including cost and destination of any travel, staff support, and the research question being addressed. These grants do not cover faculty salary support. Awards for Scowcroft grants may range from $1,000 to $2,500 and must be spent in accordance with appropriate Bush School and TAMU regulations.

ELGIBILITY: All tenured, non-tenured, tenure-track Bush School of Government and Public Service and other Texas A&M Faculty. Post Docs employed by Texas A&M are not eligible for this grant award.
