The Kinsey Institute Student Research Grant Program

About the Kinsey Institute Student Research Grants

The Kinsey Institute Student Research Grants program confers sexuality research grants to emerging scholars and seeks to fund significant and innovative research, from a wide array of disciplines and perspectives, that deals with human sexuality. The program is supported by donations from Friends of The Kinsey Institute

The Kinsey Institute will fund up to four proposals at $1000 each, including two from graduate students at Indiana University and two from graduate students enrolled at other universities. It is an expectation that results from the funded studies will ultimately be submitted for publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals. In addition, descriptions of the research will be posted on The Kinsey Institute’s website.
