Laura and John Arnold Foundation - Low-Cost Randomized Controlled Trials to Drive Effective Social Spending Grant
Low-cost randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are a powerful new tool for building scientific evidence about "what works" in social spending. Well-conducted RCTs are widely regarded as the most credible method of evaluating whether a social program is effective, but are often assumed to be inherently too expensive and burdensome for practical use in most areas. Recently, however, researchers have shown that, in many instances, high-quality RCTs can be conducted at low cost and minimal burden, addressing a key obstacle to their widespread use.
Russell Sage Foundation - Social Inequality Program
The Russell Sage Foundation's program on Social Inequality supports innovative research on whether rising economic inequality has affected social, political, and economic institutions, and the extent to which increased inequality has affected equality of opportunity, social mobility, and the inter-generational transmission of advantage. We seek investigator-initiated research projects that will broaden our understanding of the causes and consequences of rising economic inequalities in the United States.
