Foreign Policy Research Grants

Funding Agency:
Charles Koch Foundation

In recent decades, the United States has pursued an approach to foreign policy known as primacy or liberal hegemony.  This foreign policy has required active and aggressive U.S. military engagement around the globe that has undermined our safety and imperiled our prosperity and liberties.

The Foundation supports scholars and research institutions interested in challenging the current approach, providing alternative visions for U.S. foreign policy, and engaging in research that can bridge the gap between ideas and policy. The Foundation is especially interested in foreign policy research projects from political science, international relations, history, or economics. However, proposals from all fields will be considered on their merits.

Proposals will be accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis.
