Thesis, PAE, and SYPA Research Grants (for GSD and HKS Students)
Our Thesis, PAE, and SYPA Research Grants provide up to $1,000 in funding to help offset research-related expenses for GSD students writing or preparing a master’s thesis and HKS students writing or preparing a Policy Analysis Exercise (PAE) or Second Year Policy Analysis (SYPA) on a topic related to housing or community development. (Due to university-wide restrictions on travel, the Center cannot currently provide funding for travel.)
