Princeton was one of 37 grant winners in the annual research and writing competition of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation's Program on Global Security and Sustainability.
The $75,000 grant will fund work by Pavel Podvig, a visiting researcher in Princeton's Program in Science and Global Security, on Soviet and Russian policy on missile defense.
The worldwide competition was open to applicants whose research topics illuminated the dynamics of international security, sustainability and cooperation. The MacArthur Foundation, a private, independent grantmaking institution, awards more than $180 million annually.
