The Russell Sage Foundation invites applications for its pipeline grants competition. This supports early- and mid-career tenure-track scholars in conducting research on structural barriers to economic mobility and how individuals, communities and governments have come to understand, navigate and challenge the existence of systemic inequalities. Areas of interest include:
•COVID-19 and its effects;
•policy impacts and interventions;
•income and wealth;
•neighbourhood characteristics, gentrification and segregation;
•young adults of colour and social movements;
•criminal justice and the legal system;
•assessing the safety net;
•immigrants and immigration policies;
•climate change and natural disasters.
Tenure-track assistant professors and associate professors who have not previously received a research grant or visiting fellowship may apply. Associate professors must have been in the rank for less than seven years. Applications from scholars who are underrepresented in the social sciences will be prioritised.
A total of 18 one-year grants are available, each worth up to USD 30,000 for tenure track assistant professors and up to USD 50,000 for associate professors.
