Faculty Research Grant

The Richman Center provides research grants to faculty members of the Columbia Business School and Columbia Law School for promising projects with implications for business, law, and public policy. Preference will be given to collaborative research between Columbia Business School and Columbia Law School faculty that substantially elevates the external visibility of the Richman Center, Columbia Business School, and Columbia Law School. Grants are awarded for research projects, book preparation, and research workshops. Past typical award amounts have been approximately $5,000, but larger amounts will be considered, especially for collaborative work. A call for grant proposals is e-mailed to faculty each year.
