Terms of the Award

An award of $75,000 per year for four years will be provided to the sponsoring institution for use by the scholar, subject to annual review of the scholar's progress. Grant agreements will be issued in August of the award year. The awarded funds may be used at the discretion of the Pew scholar, for personnel, equipment, supplies, or travel directly related to the scholar's research and as to best advance his or her research and career.

  • The amount of the award that may be used for the principal investigator's salary is limited to $12,500 per year (including benefits) or $50,000 over the duration of the grant. There are no limits on student or postdoctoral salaries.
  • Not more than 8 percent ($24,000) of the total award value may be allocated for facilities and administration (F&A) charges or indirect costs (IDCs). 
  • Should the funds not be immediately required, they may be accumulated and carried over through the four years of the grant period and, with written approval of the program office, the grant may receive a no-cost extension for one additional (fifth) year (without additional funds).
  • Subawards are allowed.
