Sponsored Research

Sponsored research in the Department of Political Science is supported by the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy (ISERP).

ISERP is Columbia University's research institute dedicated to the social sciences, located on the third floor of the International Affairs Building.

ISERP sponsors research on a competitive basis from its own resources. It also works to find external support for and publicize innovative basic and applied social science research. Its ongoing programming coupled with the services and resources of its Research Development Office provide an ideal environment for making innovative and collaborative research possible.

Faculty who are proposing projects or have obtained awards for sponsored research should consult with the ISERP sponsored projects administrators, who will support the proposal process and manage administration of awards.

All proposals for sponsored research at Columbia University must be submitted through the Sponsored Projects Administration division of the office of the Executive Vice President for Research.
