Small Grants and Prizes

We offer small grants (typically less than $3,000) for APE community-building. Those interested in applying should submit an application to
Grant applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Watch the CAPE Grants Infosession recap to learn more.
We offer two application templates but will happily consider grants that do not fit neatly into either template (research/events). We ask that you provide us with the same kinds of information (format, purpose, goals, budget, and anticipated contributions to the APE community).
Activities we support include but are not limited to:
  • Small “pop up” workshops to bring together scholars working on a specific topic of central importance to the APE field.
  • Funding for workshopping book manuscripts on the American political economy.
  • Funding to facilitate pre-APSA research gatherings (on the Wednesday prior to APSA conferences).
  • Funding to facilitate the convening of an APSA research “cafe” on the American political economy.
