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.
All applications should limit budget requests for no more than a two-year period, with a maximum of $150,000 per project including overhead. In addition, and as stated on our website, please also be aware that the Foundation will not pay for conference travel or for tuition for doctoral student research assistants.
