Russell Sage Foundation Issues RFP for Computational Social Science Projects

The Russell Sage Foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for its Special Initiative on Computational Social Science.

Through the initiative, grants of up to $150,000 will be awarded in support of innovative social science research that brings new data and methods to bear on questions of interest in the foundation’s core programs in Behavioral Economics; the Future of Work; Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration; and Social Inequality. RSF is especially interested in novel uses of new or under-utilized data and new methods for analyzing these data. Smaller projects might consist of a pilot study to demonstrate proof-of-concept. Funds may support research assistance, data acquisition, data analysis, and investigator time for conducting research and writing up results, and the foundation encourages methodological variety and interdisciplinary collaboration.

To be eligible, organizations must be considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Review Code.

Letters of Inquiry must be received no later than November 30, 2016. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by February 27, 2017.

See the RSF website for complete program guidelines, examples of funded projects, and application procedures.
