AbouPSRES_yongwoot the Recipient: Yongwoo Jeung is currently a UO Political Science doctoral student with interests ranging from American political development and racism in the labor market, to the political economy of skill formation in advanced countries.

With this grant, Yongwoo plans to visit Austin, Texas for follow-up archival work at the LBJ Presidential Library later this month and plans to attend the Southern Political Science Association Conference, held at New Orleans, while he is still in the area.

The Moody Research Grant: The LBJ Foundation awards Moody Research Grants, underwritten by the Moody Foundation of Galveston, to graduate students, teachers, writers, and others to conduct research at the LBJ Library. Grants may be used for research, dissertations, theses, senior papers, publications and other projects. Grants range from $600 to $3,000.  Funds are awarded for the sole purpose of helping to defray living, travel and related expenses incurred while conducting research at the LBJ Library during the grant period.

Grant awards include funding for travel (airfare or mileage) and a $180 per diem for days spent conducting research at the LBJ Library, weekend days for research visits longer than one week, and one travel day.  Applications must include an estimated cost of travel (airfare or mileage), the number of days required for research at the LBJ Library, and the total number of days for research and travel.

In accepting a Moody Research Grant, an applicant must agree to the following conditions:

  • The product of the research made possible by the grant will not be used for any political purpose.
  • The funds are for the sole purpose of helping to defray expenses incurred while conducting research at the LBJ Library.
  • The grant must be used during the period for which it is awarded.
  • The recipient will provide promptly to the LBJ Foundation a copy of any publication, paper, article or book resulting from research made possible by the grant.
