Russell Sage Foundation - Behavioral Economics - Small Grants Program
The Russell Sage Behavioral Economics Roundtable offers small grants to support high quality research in behavioral economics and to encourage young investigators to enter this developing field. There are no limitations on the disciplinary background of the principal investigator, and the proposed research may address any economic topic. However, projects must contribute to the Foundation's mission to improve the social and living conditions in the U.S. Interdisciplinary efforts are welcome.

National Science Foundation (NSF) - Geography and Spatial Sciences Program - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Awards (GSS-DDRI)
The Geography and Spatial Sciences Program supports basic research about the geographic distributions and interactions of human, physical, and biotic systems on Earth. Investigators are encouraged to propose plans for research about the nature, causes, and consequences of human activity and natural environmental processes across a range of scales. Projects about a broad range of topics may be appropriate for support if they offer promise of enhancing fundamental geographical knowledge, concepts, theories, methods, and their application to societal problems and concerns.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Political Science Program - Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants (DDRI)
The Political Science Program supports scientific research that advances knowledge and understanding of citizenship, government, and politics. Research proposals are expected to be theoretically motivated, conceptually precise, methodologically rigorous, and empirically oriented. Substantive areas include, but are not limited to, American government and politics, comparative government and politics, international relations, political behavior, political economy, and political institutions.
National Science Foundation (NSF) - Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences Program - High Risk Research in Biological Anthropology and-or Archaeology (HRRBAA)
Anthropological research may be conducted under unusual circumstances, often in distant locations. As a result the ability to conduct potentially important research may hinge on factors that are impossible to assess from a distance and some projects with potentially great payoffs may face difficulties in securing funding. This program gives small awards that provide investigators with the opportunity to assess the feasibility of an anthropological research project.
