The Graduate Writing Fellows Program offers graduate students from all disciplines a valuable professionalizing opportunity to hold writing consultations with other graduate students on their writing. We highly encourage fellows to apply from a range of disciplines so that our program can represent the diversity of interests and talents on our campus.
The special issue of RSF’s Journal of the Social Sciences: Anti-Poverty Policy Innovations: New Proposals for Addressing Poverty in the United States, will be edited by Lawrence M. Berger and Katherine Magnuson, University of Wisconsin-Madison; we also expect that Maria Cancian will join us as a co-editor when she returns from leave in 2016-2017. Articles should not propose an overarching policy agenda in a particular domain.
The Russell Sage Foundation’s is interested in research that is broadly related to analyzing the causes and consequences of increased economic inequality. We encourage methodological variety, but all proposals should have well-developed conceptual frameworks and research designs. Analytical models should be specified and research questions and hypotheses should be clearly stated. Awards are available for research assistance, data acquisition, data analysis, and investigator time for conducting research and writing up results.
