The Division seeks applications for the Donald T. Regan Fund, established to bring diverse speakers to campus to lecture to undergraduates on topics in economics, government, and social problems of the United States and the world. Twice a year (spring and fall) a review committee will evaluate and select proposals for funding. The next deadline will be in February 2017.

The Social Science Division is piloting a new grant program to provide eligible tenure-track divisional faculty  small grants to support travel and other expenses associated with bringing experts to Harvard to review and offer guidance on in-progress manuscripts. Proposals will be reviewed four times a year; the next deadline is January 2, 2017.

The next deadline for the Foundations of Human Behavior Initiative  is November 30, 2016. Four times per year, a multidisciplinary faculty selection committee will choose projects for awards capped at $40,000. High-risk, high-impact projects with an interdisciplinary focus are sought. All faculty and doctoral students at Harvard are eligible to apply.
