Grants to USA scholars for economic research related to psychology, political science, sociology, and other social sciences. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. Research addressing the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic will be prioritized. Research should use insights and methods from the disciplines mentioned above to examine and improve social and living conditions in the United States.
The Russell Sage Foundation will give high priority over the next several years to rigorous social science research that investigates the immediate and long-term social, political, economic, and psychological consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. It is particularly interested in research on the effects of the crisis on vulnerable populations and how they were shaped by both the increased inequalities of the last several decades and the differential effects of federal, state, and local policies implemented in response to the pandemic. It is also interested in how the resulting circumstances and outcomes might influence governments to better anticipate and respond to future crises.
Priority will be given to field experiments, as opposed to lab experiments. Projects that can contribute to a more unified theory of human behavior to eventually eliminate the distinction between behavioral economics and the rest of economics are also of interest.
The following examples illustrate but do not exhaust, the topics and types of research the foundation would be interested in supporting:
