Grants of up to $30,000 and grants of up to $50,000 to USA assistant and associate professors for innovative research on poverty and economic mobility. Proposed projects should diagnose or address structural barriers to economic mobility and opportunities for success in America. Projects must contribute to RSF's mission to improve social and living conditions in the United States.
This initiative is designed to support early- and mid-career tenure-track scholars, and to promote diversity by prioritizing applications from scholars who are underrepresented in the social sciences. This includes racial, ethnic, gender, disciplinary, institutional, and geographic diversity.
Appropriate projects will demonstrate use of relevant theory, data, methods, and measures in the research design. RSF is interested in novel uses of new or under-utilized data, and creative uses of administrative data. Proposals might include exploratory fieldwork, a pilot study, field experiments, in-depth qualitative interviews, ethnographies, or the analysis of existing data.
