REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS – SOCIAL MEDIA AND DEMOCRACY RESEARCH GRANT PROGRAM

Deadline: Ongoing | The Social Media and Democracy Research Grant Program invites proposals that examine the impact of social media and related digital technologies on democracy and elections, generate insights to inform policy at the intersection of media, technology, and democracy, and advance new avenues for future research. Successful proposals may receive research support, data access, and peer pre-review services.

The program seeks applications from university researchers worldwide who wish to access privacy-preserving data from Facebook and who are committed to developing a credible knowledge-base of research on the role of social media in elections and in democracy. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis with the first review beginning 9 August.
