2021 Request for Proposals for Faculty and Doctoral Scholars

Washington Center for Equitable Growth - February 7, March 28, 2021

The Washington Center for Equitable Growth is pleased to announce its 2021 Request for Proposals.

Through our annual competitive grants program, Equitable Growth supports cutting-edge research investigating how inequality, in all its forms, affects economic growth and stability. We support research inquiries using many different types of evidence, relying on a variety of methodological approaches, and cutting across academic disciplines.

Equitable Growth promotes efforts to increase diversity in the economics profession and across the social sciences. We recognize the importance of diverse perspectives in broadening and deepening research on the topics in this request for proposals.

We offer support to faculty and Ph.D. students at U.S. universities through two funding streams, academic grants and doctoral/postdoctoral grants. Equitable Growth also supports pre-dissertation scholars whose research aligns with our funding priorities through an in-resident Dissertation Scholars program.

Academic letters of inquiry and dissertation scholars program applications are due February 7, 2020.

Doctoral/postdoctoral proposals are due March 28, 2020.
