Each year, the Mershon Center for International Security Studies
holds a competition for Ohio State University faculty and students
to apply for grant funds to support research in international security.
Faculty and student grants may be used for a variety of research-related purposes including
travel, seminars, conferences, interviews, experiments,
surveys, library costs, and more. All faculty, graduate student, and undergraduate applications will be judged in the same competition pool.
Applications from both faculty and students must be for projects
that relate to one or more of the Mershon Center's three
areas of focus:
• The use of force and diplomacy.
• The ideas, identities and decisional processes that
• The institutions that manage violent conflict.
We will also consider projects related to Ohio State's global gateways in China, India and Brazil, as well as policy issues in biosecurity and cybersecurity.
