David C. Lincoln Fellowship Application Guidelines
The David C. Lincoln Fellowships in Land Value Taxation (LVT) were established in 1999 to develop academic and professional interest in this topic through support for major research projects. The fellowship program honors David C. Lincoln, founding chairman of the Lincoln Institute, and his long-standing interest in LVT. The program encourages scholars and practitioners to undertake new work in this field, either in the basic theory of LVT or its applications as a component of contemporary fiscal systems in countries throughout the world.
Projects may address either the basic theory of land value taxation or its application to specific issues, domestic or international, with an emphasis on specific investigations, case studies, and theoretical work rather than general discussions of land valuation taxation principles. The research may deal with land value taxation from the perspective of economic analysis, legal theory and practice, political science, administrative feasibility, valuation techniques, or other approaches in order to achieve a better understanding of land value taxation as a component of fiscal systems.
Award & Eligibility
Research funding for each approved project will be between $20,000 and $30,000 per year. Grants are awarded for one year. After successful completion of a project, up to two new applications may be submitted for renewed funding, to support projects up to three years in length. However, each year's funding decision is independent and requires a new application. Decisions on the renewal of funding for multi-year projects will be made annually after an evaluation of interim research results.
