Research Grants

The Drug Enforcement and Policy Center (DEPC) invites Ohio State faculty and graduate students to submit proposals for funded research. DEPC grant program focuses on supporting academic research on issues related to the reform of criminal and civil laws prohibiting or regulating the use and distribution of traditionally illicit drugs. The Center supports scholarship that examines the impact of modern drug laws, policies and enforcement on personal freedoms and human well-being.

The Center aims to support 3-5 research projects each academic year. Standard awards will range from $2,500 – $10,000. The 2018 call for research proposals is posted below. The deadline for submissions is October 14, 2018.
