Michael P. Weber Endowed Research Grant

Michael P. Weber Endowed Research Grant

Michael Weber As provost and academic vice-president of Duquesne University, Dr. Michael P. Weber, a distinguished urban historian, first encouraged Duquesne's Political Science and Sociology Departments to combine forces to create the Graduate Center for Social and Public Policy. Upon his death, Dr. Weber's family and friends created the Michael P. Weber Endowed Research Grant in his memory.

Highest priority for this annual grant of approximately $2,500 is to fund a student in the Policy Center who is working on a thesis involving urban issues and social problems, urban history, or city development.

Applications are due by February 28 of each year, and awards are made in April, for use after July 1.
