RSF Pipeline Grants Competition (Deadline: November 4th, 2020 at 2 PM EDT)

RSF has launched a new pipeline grants competition for early- and mid-career researchers in collaboration with the Economic Mobility and Opportunity program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The competition seeks to promote diversity in the social sciences broadly, including racial, ethnic, gender, disciplinary, institutional, and geographic diversity. Early and mid-career faculty who have not previously received support from RSF in the form of a Trustee or Presidential research grant or a visiting fellowship from RSF are eligible to apply.

Tenure track assistant professors can apply for grants of up to $30,000, and associate professors who have been in the rank for less than seven years can apply for grants of up to $50,000. Full professors, associate professors in that rank for more than seven years, and those who have previously received RSF funding are eligible to be co-PI’s but cannot receive funding. Grants can be used for investigator salary, course buyouts, research assistance, data access, data collection, conference travel, and other research costs on a case by case basis.
