Research Groups

Taft Research Groups provide seed monies for up to three years. Groups must demonstrate a potential for leveraging external funding, among other possibilities, and/or working toward a final product, such as an edited volume. Groups are asked to find ways to disseminate research to broader audiences, for example, via op-eds or social media platforms, and to consider other activities that promote dialogue within and/or beyond the proposed research group and the Taft research community.
