A highly competitive grant awarded to faculty in need of sabbatical leave. Strong preference is given to junior faculty and those without other sabbatical opportunities; more senior scholars (10+ years from PhD) should apply for our Discourse Initiative Research Grant.
Funds cannot be used to support institutional overhead and indirect costs.
Research Topics Funded
Areas of interest include research in the classical liberal intellectual tradition, free/open markets, individual rights, private property, peace, prosperity, self-determination/autonomy, and other related themes.
To be eligible to apply for a major research award from IHS, you must be employed full time as a member of faculty or post-doctoral fellow at a four-year, degree-granting institution. Preference will be given to applicants based at institutions in North America and the United Kingdom.
