The Russell Sage Foundation invites proposals for its computational social science programme. This supports innovative social science research that brings new data and methods to bear on questions of interest in the foundation’s core programmes in behavioural economics, future of work, race, ethnicity and immigration, and social inequality. This may be achieved using:
- big data;
- linked administrative data;
- private administrative data;
- online surveys and experiments;
- text analysis.
Project grants are worth up to USD $75,000 (approx. AUD $99,000) each.
Applicants, both PIs and co-PIs, must have a PhD or comparable terminal degree, or a strong career background that establishes their ability to conduct high-level, peer-reviewed scholarly research. Early career scholars are encouraged to apply for presidential grants.
Applicants from all nationalities may apply and do not have to reside in the US.
