Reflective Engagement in the Public Interest

Public Scholarship at Georgetown University

Dear Colleagues:

This year, the Reflective Engagement Steering Committee is continuing to provide grants to encourage public scholarship: academic research that aims to contribute in an important way to some major public issue. Our grants both support public scholarship directly and support those who aim to help build the University's capacity to undertake this kind of academic work in the future.

To learn more about the Reflective Engagement Initiative and past grant recipients, please follow the links below.   In particular, read about our recent grant recipients for the 2012-2013 academic year in the "Funded Projects" document.

We also invite you to respond to our call for proposals for the 2013-14 academic year. Information about our criteria, process, and the documents required to accompany a proposal can be found belowThe deadline for submitting your proposal electronically to me is Monday, March 24, 2014 at 5 pm.

Thank you for visiting this page to learn more about the Reflective Engagement Initiative and the ways it promotes public scholarship at Georgetown. We look forward to receiving your grant application and reading about your ideas.

Best wishes,

Reena Aggarwal
2013-14 Grant Process Facilitator and Robert E. McDonough Professor of Finance
