Seed Grants

In order to bring more on-campus recognition to the new Center for Public Policy Research and encourage interdisciplinary connections, we created a seed grant program to promote extramural research in either political economy or public policy. This an ongoing program whose goal it is to assist faculty in cultivating a base of external funding that will support their work over the long-term.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), the Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
