Research Grants

The Race, Ethnicity, Politics & Society (REPS) Lab periodically invites applications for small grants to conduct experimental research. These grants ($500-$2000) are aimed to support initial data collections for UCLA students and faculty in Political Science and Psychology. There are two types of funds that one can apply for: Doctoral Student Grants and Faculty-Student Grants. The goal of these funds is to pay for subject fees and/or other costs associated with experimental data collection. Any funds provided by the REPS Lab must be used within one year of being awarded. The competition for these grants is open with respect to substantive focus. The only requirement is that proposed projects must be experimental in nature.
