The Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison seeks to fund research examining policies and programs with the potential to reduce child poverty and/or its effects, a key area of interest identified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation. Proposals are invited from Ph.D.-holding scholars at all career stages, from postdoctoral fellows to senior faculty, and from all disciplines. IRP anticipates funding four to eight projects, with awards ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 each.
Howard University’s Center on Race and Wealth and the Institute for Research on Poverty at the University of Wisconsin–Madison seek applications for the first annual Summer Dissertation Proposal Writing Workshop. This week-long workshop held at Howard University in Washington, D.C., is aimed at pre-proposal doctoral students in the social sciences from underrepresented populations who are studying topics related to poverty or inequality.
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.
