We welcome applications from researchers at all levels proposing to rigorously evaluate potentially scalable interventions designed to increase the numbers and success of women in the economics and mathematics professions.
Per the guidelines of the Consortium’s support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Henry Luce Foundation, foreign researchers and organizations are eligible to apply but a strong case would need to be made as to how the work would benefit (transfer or otherwise be applicable) to the United States.
No. We are interested in the ability to produce high-quality work rather than in specific degrees.
Yes. There is no limit on the number of proposals that a single organization can submit.
Your grant can commence after program staff have received the proper documentation, i.e., signed copies of the formal award letter, the payment schedule, and the taxability questionnaire.
Budgets for projects focused solely on women in economics should not exceed $200,000 in total costs and should be appropriate to cover project costs. Projects designed to evaluate interventions in both economics and mathematics may apply for an additional supplement of $50,000. Indirect costs may not exceed 10% of direct costs. Projects with subawardees can distribute direct and indirect costs across institutional partners; the 10% cap on indirect costs applies to the overall budget.
The Social Science Research Council is the primary sponsor.
