The Clements Center provides research funding for UT scholars and students. Funding is available on a competitive basis to support the research and publication of articles and books. Past sponsorship has included research trips to presidential libraries and support for paper presentations at academic conferences. This program is offered throughout the academic year.
Strong preference will be given to proposals from students who have demonstrated involvement with the Clements Center, such as through regular attendance at Clements Center events, participation in the Graduate Fellows program, and/or enrollment in the Portfolio in Security Studies.
