Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA doctoral fellows, doctoral students, and junior faculty at IHEs for social science research. New applicants must create an online account at least 48 hours prior to applying. Funding is intended to improve living and social conditions in the United States. The Foundation is primarily interested in social science research that explores and improves understanding of social, psychological, political and economic outcomes.

RSF’s initiative on Computational Social Science supports innovative social science research that utilizes new data and methods to advance understanding of the research issues that comprise its core social science programs in Social, Political, and Economic Inequality, Behavioral Economics, Future of Work, and Race, Ethnicity and Immigration. Limited consideration will be given to research that focuses primarily on methodologies, such as causal inference and innovations in data collection. 

Examples of the types of research topics of interest are highlighted in the Computational Social Science (CSS) RFP and a description of recent grants can be found at https://www.russellsage.org/research/computational-social-science.

There is a $10,000 lifetime limit for the Small Grants in CSS.

Term of Contract:

RSF restricts the project period to one year.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must be advanced doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, or non-tenured junior faculty members who are no more than two years beyond the receipt of their Ph.D. (or equivalent graduate degree). There are no limitations on the disciplinary background of the researcher. The Foundation encourages applications from scholars who are traditionally underrepresented in the scientific disciplines and RSF’s application pool.

No funds may be used to support (1) salary or conference travel for the investigator or co-authors, or (2) the purchase of computer hardware or software. A budget that appears to be excessive will be grounds for rejecting a proposal.
