Call for Proposals

The next Call for Proposal will be listed here


The SWIFT Institute issues calls for research proposals on specific themes or topics on an on-going basis. Submissions are reviewed by the Advisory Council, and grants are awarded to support approved research proposals.
Proposals from prospective researchers must include a cover letter, CV, details of research experience, examples of published work, references, idea for research, methodology to be used, timeframe for completion, and expected output (e.g. working paper, presentation). Proposals should only be submitted in response to an issued Call for Proposal.
Once a sponsored research paper is ready to be published, the SWIFT Institute will publish it on its website as well as the academic journal repository SSRN. The SWIFT Institute will issue a press release on the paper and may even feature the newly published research in its quarterly newsletter. After the SWIFT Institute publishes the research, the research and its content belong to the researcher to publish, giving credit to the support given by the SWIFT Institute.
