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 next deadline for applications is November 4, 2021.

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.

You can find more information on the Pipeline Competition here. Questions should be directed to Program Officer Stephen Glauser, at

Additionally, if anyone in your team or peer network would be interested in updates from RSF, they can sign up for our newsletter here. We are also hosting a webinar with details and a Q&A about our programs and best practices for applying on October 5th at 2 PM ET. You can sign up for that here.
