Michigan Applied Public Policy Research Grant Program (MAPPR)
MSU's Institute for Public Policy and Social Research (IPPSR) is now accepting proposals through the Michigan Applied Public Policy Research grant program (MAPPR) for applied research on a current policy-relevant issue in Michigan. The program distributes up to $150,000 in total annually with faculty able to apply for grants of up to $25,000. Grant recipients will conduct and submit a written report on their research findings that is pertinent to policymakers. IPPSR also offers survey research services through the Office for Survey Research and the State of the State Survey and can assist with related budget preparation.
Please send the attached guidelines to your faculty with a recommendation for participation. To apply, faculty should submit a three-page proposal following the attached proposal guidelines by June 12, 2019. Additional information, as well as a list of previously funded MAPPR projects and reports, is available at http://ippsr.msu.edu/public-policy/michigan-applied-public-policy-research-mappr.
IPPSR also conducts trainings and forums for state policymakers and seeks faculty participation. Our website also includes a blog for faculty to present evidence-based commentary on state policy, Michigan Policy Wonk. A searchable database of policy-relevant research, and a directory of MSU faculty experts as well as many interesting podcasts. We welcome your involvement in this venue.
