What Can GWIPP Do For Faculty?

GWIPP provides assistance to GW faculty in generating and administering externally funded policy research in several ways including:

FINDING research teams by identifying and recruiting other faculty with similar interests or skills useful to the project.

FUNDING the Policy Research Scholar Program which offers targeted assistance for faculty members pursuing policy research.

IDENTIFYING potential external funding sources, many of which already have a funding relationship with GWIPP.

MONITORING data bases for research opportunities that may be of interest to GWIPP affiliated faculty.

DESIGNING funding proposals, developing budgets, navigating the human subjects (IRB) process, and submitting the proposals.

PROVIDING substantive and methodological assistance, when desired and appropriate, through consultation and proposal review. Substantive and methodological assistance are provided by the Director and Associate Director, who are available to read drafts of concept papers, letters of inquiry, and proposal drafts, to refer faculty to other sources and experts, on and off campus, and to organize workshops where draft proposals can be discussed.

ADMINISTERING and managing grants once awarded.
