      * GRANTS: CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCH AWARDS *

      DEADLINE: All proposals must be received no later than March 1, 2012.

      The Dirksen Congressional Center invites applications for grants to fund
      research on congressional leadership and the U.S. Congress. The Center, named
      for the late Senate Minority Leader Everett M. Dirksen, is a private,
      nonpartisan, nonprofit research and educational organization devoted to the
      study of Congress and its leaders. Applications are accepted at any time, but
      the deadline is March 1 for the annual selections, which are announced in
      April. A total of up to $35,000 will be available in 2012.

      The competition is open to individuals with a serious interest in studying
      Congress. Political scientists, historians, biographers, scholars of public
      administration or American studies, and journalists are among those eligible.
      The Center encourages graduate students who have successfully defended their
      dissertation prospectus to apply and awards a significant portion of the funds
      for dissertation research. Applicants must be U.S. citizens who reside in the
      United States.

      The awards program does not fund undergraduate or pre-Ph.D. study.
      Organizations are not eligible. Research teams of two or more individuals are
      eligible. No institutional overhead or indirect costs may be claimed against a
      Congressional Research Award.

      Download the Word document -- Congressional Research Award Application -- and
      complete the required entries. You may send the application as a Word or PDF
      attachment to an e-mail directed to Frank Mackaman at
      fmackaman@.... Please insert the following in the Subject Line:
      "CRA Application [insert your surname]." Thank you.

      The Congressional Research Award Application contains the following elements:
      Applicant Information, Congressional Research Award Project Description,
      Project Description, Budget, Curriculum Vita, Reference Letter, and Overhead
      Waiver Letter.

      The entire application when printed must NOT exceed ten pages. This total does
      NOT include the reference letter (one additional page) or the Overhead Waiver
      Letter (one additional page). Applications which exceed the page limit and
      incomplete applications will NOT be forwarded to the screening committee for
      consideration.

      All application materials must be received on or before March 1, 2012. Awards
      will be announced in April 2012.

      Complete information about what kind of research projects are eligible for
      consideration, what could a Congressional Research Award pay for, application
      procedures, and how recipients are selected may be found at The Center's

      Research Awards (formerly the Congressional Research Grants) program has
