The Access Group Center for Research & Policy Analysis and the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) invite applications for $50,000 research grants (faculty, practitioners, scholars) and $25,000 doctoral grants (Ph.D. candidates). The application deadline is December 19, 2016.
The program is a grant competition promoting scholarship on issues related to access, affordability and value of legal education specifically, and graduate and professional education more broadly. Preference is given to proposals that utilize regional, national, or multi-institutional datasets, although research that focuses on a single institution is acceptable. Preference is also given to proposals that specifically address legal education; however, proposals that study access, affordability and value of graduate and professional education more generally are also encouraged. Researchers may analyze pre-existing data or include the construction of a new dataset in their proposal. Membership to Access Group or AIR is not required for grant eligibility.

The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy has announced its sixth annual Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition on Regulatory and Administrative Law. Judge Cudahy’s work in these areas combines a keen grasp of legal doctrine, deep insight into the institutional forces that determine how doctrine is implemented, and an appreciation of the public impact of doctrinal and institutional choices, including the consequences for fundamental values such as fairness, participation, and transparency. This competition seeks to encourage and reward these qualities in the scholarship of others. A winner will be selected in both the lawyer and student categories. The author of the winning paper in each category will receive a cash prize of $1,500. The winning papers will receive special recognition at the ACS National Convention, on the ACS website, and potentially through other means agreed upon by the authors and ACS.
Participants are encouraged to view this topic broadly and submissions on a variety of substantive areas are welcome. The deadline for submissions is February 11, 2013. For more details, go here.
